It’s been a year: goal-writing and the SCA

On the other other hand, goal-writing allows us to see our own growth and learn from what we've done in the past - it's not a checklist. It's a way to see how far you've come as a person (or your kit, etc.) and yet still show how far you have to go, and then using that as a form of finding contentment. It's kind of Zen, really.
