I'm not a fan of "New Years Resolutions," but I do enjoy setting goals for myself. What's the difference? In my mind resolutions seem to be very arbitrary, not well documented or mesaured, and quickly forgotten, while goals are much more specific, measurable, actionable, realistic, and time-bound.

My Goals for 2017

- Cook one new recipe with one new food per week
- Bike 1500 miles

I'll detail my goal tracking at the end of each month.
