I only started making goals the last couple of years. I decided to do this because I got a rather late start scrapping -- my kids were grown and I had grandkids when I got started -- and have so so many pictures to scrap and plenty of time to do it. Making a goal is sort of my way of better managing my time. As it is, I still waste plenty of it. ;)
Last year I set a very modest goal of 52 layouts, in addition to all the other projects I do throughout the year. I figured one page a week was certainly doable for someone who has all the time in the world! I also figured I would get a lot more done if I set a goal for myself and kept track of what I accomplished. This thinking was the result of a very lazy previous year in which I did a whopping 11 layouts for the entire year. Talk about wasted time. I was so mad at myself I decided I must set a goal to keep myself motivated and get those pictures scrapped! Well I far surpassed that goal so this year I set the goal at 100. I made my goal for the year on September 1, so now it's all gravy for the rest of the year! Woohoo, go me!
Do you set a scrapping goal for yourself? How do you decide what your goal will be for the year? And do you generally make your goal(s)?
