what’s on your “i will” list?

Shari and her I Will list
Goalsetting is a huge part of our culture at lululemon. To help inspire you to set goals for the upcoming year, we asked our payroll superstar, Shari, if we could feature some of the things she's working towards in 2010 in this week's ecommerce email. Shari sent us a huge list, and here are some of the highlights!
i will list
I will send handmade Christmas cards.
I will dance at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.
I will complete a 30-day yoga challenge.
I will learn to ski.
I will volunteer more.
I will run the Vancouver Sun Run.
I will make every day count.
I will own a condo in Vancouver.
I will keep a detailed calendar in 2010.
I will remember compliments.
I will give up bottled water.
I will go to Scotland and visit Ashley.

share your goals

An important part of goal-setting is making your goals public by sharing them with those around you (or in Shari's case, our website visitors and email subscribers!). Something special happens when you make your goals public. Try it!

To learn how to create your own goals, get started at our goaltender website: goals.lululemon.com

We have something in common, my I will is to go to Scotland as well, in order to compete in the World Highland Dancing Championship at Cowal in Dunoon! I know you feature many great althletes, but don’t forget about us Highland Dancers. If you get the chance check it out, whether it’s watching a competition or taking a class, it’s a great sport!
