I made a goal to exercise 6 days a week for 3 months. I only made it about 3 weeks before I got burned out. It is important to set realistic goals and work your way up to really ambitious goals.

At Sterns Department Store, I was a Department Manager in the Juniors Department. We had a new designer to feature and I set a department goal to sell out of the product in a month. I was a new manager and had done some research- talking to other managers, noting the rate of sale of other products, and judging the response from customers when they first tried the product on.<br /><br />And even though these items were almost always ones the girls would select to try on, they did not buy them at the rate I was expecting. I did not meet my goal and learned a valuable lesson from that experience.

Last year, I planned to complete the Azalea Trail Run. I am not the most athletic person so this would have been a great success for me. However, I injured my knee while running and was not able to participate in the race. I look forward to completing the race in the near future, however.
