I did the review of 2010 and now it’s time to look forward to 2011. The new year always brings such hope. Hope that we can change, that life can be better, that after 2 years I’ll lose the baby weight, but hope is not a plan and a plan is what helps you follow through. So this year there will be no hoping, no resolving, no list of goals without anything to support them, this year there will be a plan to go with each of those things. So in fact there will be hoping, resolving and a list of goals, but only if there is some sort of supporting plan even if it’s just a rough outline.
Here’s the big picture of what we’re outlining for the year:
- A year of happiness and fun. To do the things we always say we should do that sometime and to actually follow through with them.
- A year of health and activity. Bye bye bad habits and hello hard work to get to new better habits.
- A year of choosing to or choosing not to instead of having to or looking back on should haves. I don’t have to do things, I choose to do things. If I choose not to do things, I accept what that means and I don’t look back and say I should have done something else instead.
Yeah it’s kind of broad, but that’s okay. Broad goals/directions provide the necessary flexibility to actually obtain them when you consider that real life will happen.
What are your goals/directions or if you want to have resolutions for the new year?
