New Year’s Resolutions Printable and My 2012 Goals

by Carrie with Children with 32 comments

I wasn’t going to make any type of resolutions for the New Year, just like everyone else I make resolutions and soon they are broken. However, all that changed when I found this great New Year’s resolutions printable on Pinterest from Mique at …. I knew I had to do it.

So, thanks to the cute printable….. here are my “one word” and goals for 2012.

I chose the word “efficient” because I want to be productive in saving time, not putting too much on my plate and take advantage of opportunities that truly interest me.  My favorite goal for this year is “Say No more than yes”.  I always find myself juggling too many projects, I’m hoping to choose wiser in 2012.

I love this printable because it includes the words Want, Need, Share, Succeed – each of them such powerful words and really required me to think a lot about myself and this new year.

I’ve got my goals printed out and framed on my desk, practically staring me in the face.  I’m excited to see what I accomplish this year.  Here’s hoping I stay close to my goals!


Stay tuned next week, I’m excited to show you the new meal planning chart I’ve got in place for our family too!

Don’t forget to check out to get this printable and make your own goals and resolutions for 2012!

    Great goals! A lot of mine are the same as yours!

    Better more efficient, better at time management and saying no more than yes for sure!

    I loved the idea of having them on your desk. I am going to have to steal that. I made a bucket list for 2012, but I like this way for my work resolution. I am going to work on them now though some of yours will be the same as mine.

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks Cassie! I think having it staring at me every day will help keep me focused on my goals! 🙂 Good luck coming up with your resolutions!

    I’m not a resolution maker either. Fruitless actually! I’m more of a sparkle reacher…I think your sparkles are fabulous for the coming year!

    I’m trying to cut down on caffeine as well. Now, leave me alone.

    Just kidding 🙂 But getting off the hard drugs (coffee) has been a little rough!
