New Year’s Eve is a time of reflection of the year past and a time of renewal and motivation for the year ahead.
I have had many changes over the past year, new homeowner, new engagement, new business, new job…I am getting a little tired of new. With all of the changes in my life over the last twelve months, most of my resolutions hinge on time management. As you may or may not have noticed I have be fairly absent in the blogging and social media scene. This is one of my resolutions is to be more active as a blogger. Organization is going to be my key to hitting my resolutions this year. Anyone have any hints?
The goals I set for myself last year were largely missed. I think for me, I need to be evaluating my goals more frequently. Perhaps I set some unrealistic goals, but I think also I didn’t re-evaluate when things in my life changed. As you can see, I have had a lot of changes. This year, I am going to set more short term goals and look at them often. I am not going to see missing a goal as a failure, but learn from it.
What I learned this year, is to not ignore the things that seem to get left behind each day, they pile up. I learned being more structured in scheduling is important for me, even though I value flexibility. I discovered that even when organization is not your strongest ‘personality trait’ that you still have to do it. I also realized creating an organization system takes time and many ‘re-evaluations.’
Here’s a toast to everyone and their resolutions this year. I hope we can all celebrate our small successes and not allow our disappointments stop our forward momentum.
If you have health goals on your mind this year, let me know. I can help you set short, achievable goals. Change doesn’t happen in a day (especially New Year’s Day). Change come slowly, step by little step.
Happy New Year
