Eleven months ago today, a lot of us made our usual New Year’s Resolutions.
We decided to get more exercise, be more kind, take better care of ourselves, save more money, enjoy life more, just to name a few.
We started off great, but then around January 20th, life started getting in the way.
By March, I could hardly remember what I was thinking on that cold January day. I decided to do what?
One of the chief reasons people forget their resolutions is because they didn’t write them down. Some other reasons are that they were too difficult, they weren’t measurable, or they were boring.
I think resolutions are great, and I try to have them spread throughout the year. The other day, I was in a discount store and found a bunch of leather-bound journals for about $10 each. I picked up a couple, knowing that my current journal is just about out of pages.
So, I’m getting myself ready for another round of resolutions for the coming year. I want to get them written down this time around, with some clear objectives, completion dates, and some measuring points to keep me on track.
If you were wise and wrote your 2010 goals down, when was the last time you took a look? How did you do? If you met them, good for you. If you didn’t, there’s still 30 days left 🙂
