2005 Goals in Review

Things from my goals list, which I DID NOT ACCOMPLISH :-(

Pay off my Capital One Mastercard (which has the highest interest).
I did not put the card in a Ziploc bag with water and stick it in the freezer, so I couldn't use it. Another failure to follow the action plan.

Give more compliments.A/P: Each day, give at least one compliment to a stranger/casual associate.A/P: Each day, give at least one compliment to a family member/close friend.
