I’m looking forward to renewed health and energy in 2012, lots of camping in the Kootenays, a large garden, loving on little people, and precious times with family. Most of all, I’m expecting 2012 to draw me into an ever-renewing relationship with God.
What are your plans for this brand new year?
Good luck with your goals. It’s great that you have some fun ones in there. I think a lot of people mess themselves up by focusing just on self-improvement and work.
I realized my New Year’s Resolution is to figure out a plan to make progress on all my goals. The goals haven’t really changed all that much. My biggest problem is not having a real way to get there. My second biggest problem is that my job is so unpredictable that I can’t plan anything. I’m quitting my job because that unpredictablity will likely interfere with my work to start a business this year.
I use the goals board at FM to break my annual goals into monthly chunks. Usually that’s where I’ll name the specific project(s) that will be my focus that month. I find that I need manageable, doable pieces or there’s no hope! Good luck with your business start up 🙂
