How to Set Your Personal Goals?

We are already into the second week of January and I haven't really sat down to write my personal goals for this year.  I prefer to say personal goals instead of New Year's resolutions.  I just think that there is this notion that New Year's resolutions don't work or they don't stick long enough.

Anyway, I Googled to look for some guidelines on how to write my personal goals and I read this Personal Goal Setting article from Mind Tools and it was really enlightening.  But I found out that I have to really sit down to be able to do it.  Why? Because instead of just writing down what I want to do for the year, it would be better to write down first my lifetime goals (what I want to do in the next 10 years or so), then break these down into smaller goals (five-year plan, one-year plan, six-month plan and one-month plan plus the daily to-do list). I think this method makes good sense as it provides a better direction for someone who wants to achieve something in life and make the most of it. 

Most of us are familiar with the mnemonic SMART when it comes to setting goals.  Whatever goals I would be writing down (yes, I have to write them down), they must be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound.

SMART Goal Setting

I don't know how detailed I could be in writing my personal goals but I will try to do this.  Then, I can have something to look at at the end of the year to evaluate how SMART I was in setting and achieving my goals.

Got to go and work on this.  Have you worked on your personal goals?

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice.


When we came back to the Philipines, I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working.  Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time.

We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

My PureIt Excella Water Purifier Review

Last December, we bought a PureIt Excella water purifier at SM Megamall. After almost 7 months of using it, I can say that it was a good decision.

Why Buy a Water Purifier?
CONVENIENCE.

That is the primary reason I wanted to buy a water purifier. With a portable water purifier at home, I don’t have to ask my husband or my sons to buy mineral or filtered water at nearby water vendors. I know there are free home delivery services, but I think having our own water filter is still the most convenient. No calling. No waiting. No hassle.

The only question is which brand of water purifier should we buy? It’s a good thing we discovered …
