This is the kind of topic most people talk about at the end of the year, or right after the start of a new year. (I’m sure I’ve addressed it those times, too, over the seven years during which the Saturday Six has been up and running.)
But now that the calendar just flipped over to July — which I still can’t believe — it’s a great time to look at where you are now versus where you were then.
Goals is the topic of this week’s edition. Thanks for dropping by!

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your blog… But don’t forget to leave a link to your blog so that everyone else can visit! Permission is not granted to copy the questions to message boards for the purpose of having members answer and play along there. Enjoy!
1. Did you set any specific goals for yourself for 2011, and if so, what kinds of goals did you set? I have long since stopped setting anything on New Year's Eve/Day. Most people make resolutions, which are inevitably doomed. I am not one to set myself up for that kind of disappointment.
2. How often do you go back and review a goal after you’ve set it to see how you measure up before the goal is actually reached? Not enough to make it happen. Right now I'm a week into budgeting and being careful with money and I am checking on my whole picture at a site called www.mint.com. I check that every other day, roughly.
3. Of the goals that you’d be willing to share, what’s the most ambitious one you’ve set for yourself? Losing weight. It's ambitious but next to impossible, really.
4. If you had to give yourself a letter grade, how would you score on achieving this specific goal so far? Um... a "G"?
5. Of the following categories: health, spirituality, career, lifestyle and personal development; in which do you feel you’re most on track? Personal development is it.
6. Of the same list of categories, in which do you feel you’re least on track? Career - I can't work any longer. And money, while much improved at the moment, is always the biggest struggle for me.
