NEW GOALS COMPLETED OVER THE MONTH:
#4 My cottage industry, The Rocking Horse, has begun to gallop. Though it is a work in progress, it has been focused on for the past couple of weeks. There will be pictures that need to be taken of the product line, but those will be added as the items are made. Sometimes I thought I couldn’t get this done, especially since I am not a techie, but persistence is one of my core values…and I don’t give up easily! One step at a time.
#6 Remember how I was leaving this for last. Well I have not…I have taken all the kids photo albums and gotten three boxes (one for each). In the evenings, by the fire, and watching a movie, I have removed the best pictures of each and placed them into their respective boxes. Duplicates I have tossed, and any blurred ones, also tossed. How many pictures do we need of the same birthday party, Holidays, first bike ride etc…save the best.
I will chronologically place and label each of the pictures into their albums. Scanning did not hold that heart felt sentiment for me as reviewing the past and creating a journey. Each to his/her own, but it worked for me.
#11 I have asked my sister, Nina, to help me with, as this is right up her ally and I love her taste!
#19 Stone wall all repaired before the snow fell.
#29 Decided the hot yoga classes were just to hot for me, so I joined another excersice class. Feeling great!!!
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT…IF I CAN DO IT SO CAN YOU.
What I learned:
A year is a long time….keeping up is a commitment, but the end result for me is feeling tremendously accomplished. No one said that this would be a walk in the park, and many times I believed I took on way too much. However, after three months into it I had two choices: continue or give up.
If I continued I knew that I was accountable to all who read this blog and to all those in my radio land. To quit meant to not even try to succeed. I could have used any number of excuses, but I would be cheating myself of two things:
1. what would I learn about myself by accomplishing these goals? and 2. how would my goals serve me in the end?
I can say to you as I end 2008 that I not only surprised myself but others.
START WHERE YOU STAND.
Set small goals
Be specific, make them measureable, attainable, realistic, and time-oriented.
GIVE YOURSELF A CHANCE TO SUCCEED.
if not now…when? Tell me your own story…I would love to offer you support..
Wishing you and yours a very safe, warm Holiday Season
