We know it can be difficult for church leaders to even think about making a list of New Year’s resolutions when faced with an already lengthy list of tasks and projects that need to be done at the beginning of the year. As daunting as it may be, don’t disregard the process of actually writing down goals for the year ahead.
Having a physical goals list to reference easily can be helpful in many ways. It serves as a visual reminder and constant motivation if you post it on your bathroom mirror or refrigerator door. Even better than just a daily reminder is the ability to hold this list in your hands and pray through your goals for the year any time you are feeling discouraged.
