Under usual circumstances, I’d sit and contemplate the resolutions I made & the challenges I set myself last year, to see how well I’d fared. As it stands, so much has changed since last year that it’s almost irrelevant.
Last year was a catalyst, a year of ideas, a year of plans and a year of hard work. By August I realised I had to take drastic steps if I was ever going to move my career forwards. In the midst of summer I was trying to decorate my house, plan my wedding, keep up with blog & podcast and make decisions as to how to take the next big step. I guess I’m one of those people who thrive under pressure.
I’ve just signed up to Project52. Originally intended as a small group of friends supporting each other to reach their goals, there are now over 700 members and I’m really interested to see how this develops into a workable system.
Last year I promised to write once a week and failed, so I’m hoping this might spur me on to achieve that goal this year. The intention is that a tracking system will be created to monitor progress of group members. If the system works (once it goes live) I’ll also be purchasing a mug as a daily reminder – I just wish they did one in purple!
For 2010 I pledge to stay on top of the game.
To keep my house clean and tidy, to remember all the bills and paper work and have them done on time, to lose weight and exercise, to be organised with birthdays, Christmas and other important dates and to use my free time wisely so that I may achieve my goals.
Short, honest and to the point. The last 5 months have been an epic fail for me in terms of my mid-year resolutions and personal goals. I’m not going to go back through them or explain the multitude of things that had to take priority this year. Suffice to say, I did not achieve what I intended and that needs to change.
