Some changes around here

I updated the mission and the plan for the new year. I still can't really believe that I made it through the whole year! Remember on January 5th when my coworkers laughed at me and told me I couldn't do it? Yeah, I do. :) This morning on the Today show they said only 30% of people keep their resolutions, and I'm one of them!

I changed my plan to say I want to pay off another 20% of my debt. I'm slightly hesitant to put a specific number on it, because I don't know if it's realistic and I would hate to be disappointed at the end of 09 if I don't make it there. But I also think it's important to have a specific goal in mind... so I don't know. I may change it to 15%, but I really want to push myself to do even better this year. So, as it stands now, I want that debt ticker to read 38.4% on January 1, 2010. I believe in setting the bar high!

Ohhhh now that's a challenge - to make it into the top 30% of the resolution keepers. That is amazing to be a part of that statistic!!
I think you can do it :)
