Resolutions, Goals, and Objectives

It’s January—the first month of a new year. This is the time when people tend to think about clean slates and a fresh starts. They make resolutions and set objectives. If you’re a member of the National Genealogical Society, at least some of those objectives likely relate to genealogy.

Most people express their resolutions as goals—general, long-range targets stated in terms of a result or outcome. Goals are, more or less, dreams for the future, rough ideas about where one would like to be someday. Common new-year goals include getting more exercise, eating better, saving money towards retirement, losing weight, and learning to relax. Genealogists’ goals may focus on improving research skills or continuing to investigate their subject families.
