Anne says that God makes no two flowers or snowflakes or women alike. Therefore, the way we establish our goals will be different from one another. She recommends, though, that goals be broken down into smaller units so that we can evaluate them in order to check our progress. Quarterly, monthly, or weekly --- whatever works best for you and your personality will do. Some people are 'paper people' and write everything down in detail. Others are more 'fly by the seat of your pants' types. Either way can be dangerous, but through self analysis we can avoid the dangers of over-planning (and not having time to get past the planning and to our goals) or seat-flying (taking each day as it comes without having anticipated it, planned for it, shaped it, or prayed over it). Anne suggests establishing guidelines for ourselves so that we can control our days rather than letting them control us.
