Goals, Not Resolutions

I'm going to try to set some goals for this year. Rather than resolutions, which tend to be the fairly ambiguous, I'm going to try to use the SMART formula for setting the goals. The goals need to be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely.

To this end, I think I'm going to start by setting a monthly goal and weekly goals. The monthly goals will be a project to complete by the end of the month. The weekly goals will be more along the lines of habits I want to work on developing (or breaking). I'll report progress as I go, but I'll need help. I'd appreciate if all you readers keep me honest on this. If I don't update my progress, feel free to harass me about it.

To that end, my first goals are: for the month of January--to create a budget to help reach our new savings goals; and for the first week of the month, to drink at least 64oz of water each day. So... here goes.
