A new year looming on the horizon always shoots me into action. I like to begin with a review of my last year, did I do anything noteworthy did a achieve what I set out to do and what mistakes were made. I find it’s also a good time to clean out my files and drawers in my office. It makes me feel as if I am making room for fresh ideas. I also get a glimpse into the stuff I want to avoid wasint time on in the new year. I have two left over christmas boxes I use, one for stuff that definitely goes in the trash and one for stuff I will hang onto, but store elsewhere. I may even go through last years elsewhere box and get rid of much of that too.
I have some new goals for this year so I’ll take a cheap planner with some lines in it and set to work tonight filling in daily and weekly baby steps towards reaching those specific goals. I am going to set a definite deadline this year for the goals too which is new for me. Usually I’m not confident enough to demand outcome I suppose; hint to self this might have been the problem. It’s odd but I can’t even think of having a new years eve party until this has been taken care of. But reading back over the years journal I see that it worked out well for me for the most part. So I’ll fire em up and aim for an amazing 2010.
