Solid Goals is a website that allows you to create a goal, set the tasks you need to complete to meet that goal, and blog about your process. You can share you goal with the rest of the community, which not only helps you stay accountable for your goal, but also helps you get valuable suggestions for other users. I signed up for it myself, to see what the process was like, and it’s an easy and free registration process, and you immediately can go in and start setting your goals. It is a relatively new site, and it’s fairly obvious that as it grows and as more people register and start participating in the community, the site will become more helpful and more robust, but it is already a fabulous resource for setting goals and catching a glimpse at the kind of goals others are setting. Want to keep your goal private? They have a way you can do that too - you can set your goal and mark it “private” so that only you can see it.
