Happy New year everyone!
As 2012 gets under way, I’ve been immersed in reading other blogs about whether or not to make resolutions.It’s kind of a natural topic du jour at the beginning of January.
I stopped thinking about New Year’s resolutions
years decades ago. Don’t wait for the beginning of a new year to reflect. Do it every night before you fall asleep. Personally, each morning is when I remind myself of what I want to accomplish for that day (call it setting goals, if you like) and as the mornings roll by I can usually see progress as life ebbs and flows.
I’m not saying it isn’t good to set goals, because it is absolutely necessary to do that. Set them at other times than New Year’s though – as you see the need begin to logically appear not because it’s January 1st. Set them every day. I’m just saying …
Setting small goals will lead to great success. Believe in yourself and let the little engine that could be your inspiration. You CAN do it!
Then I read Kristen Lamb’s blog post from yesterday, 2012 AND PLANNING FOR SUCCESS IN THE NEW YEAR. I was totally blown away! Hurry, go there now – click right here – and take it all in. She has laid it out as clearly as I have ever seen it before. You can apply the six steps she outlines to whatever you do in life.
For those of us who write: read it and believe.
Then just do it!
