January is a great time to make goals for a new year. To get started, cut out the “My Goals, 2006” chart on page 25 and mount it on heavy paper. Cut out six small pieces of blank paper, one for each area on the chart, and write a goal on each of them. Tape them on the chart, and hang it where you can see it every day.
When you have finished writing your goals, make a “My 2006 Goal Time Capsule” by decorating a jar, box, or other container with the label on this page. Every time you finish a goal, take it off the chart and put it in the capsule. Then make a new goal for that area.
You will be surprised to see what you can do when you work hard! Next Christmas, when the year is almost over, you could put your capsule under the tree as a gift to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They are happy when we learn and grow in all areas of our lives.
