Goals, what are they good for?

ImageAs the month of October arrived, I found my bicycle riding mileage approaching 2000, just as the day light free-falls away in earnest. When the year started, I stated a New Year’s Resolution of riding 3000 miles this year.  That would be more than I had ever done in a year, by a wide margin.

It is clear to me now, that there is no way that I will be able to reach that goal.  Likely I will fall somewhere in the neighborhood of the past couple years, right in that 2200-2300 range,  My best year ever tally was a tad over 2600.

Should I be disappointed?

Should I look at it as a string pulling me forward and keeping me focused?

How do you use New Year’s Resolutions, or do you not even bother?  Christmas stuff is hitting the shelves already so maybe it is time to start planning for 2014.
