Well, it's been quite a year. One year ago, I was in a very different space in my life, and a very different time. Lots has changed over the course of that time, and I have to say that it was mostly for the better. Much better. I've made new friends, solidified old ones, and even reconnected with some I hadn't seen in far too long.
So, even though it's pretty much mid-May, I thought it was appropriate for me to make a few resolutions. So here they are. My promises to myself for the upcoming year.
- Make less promises. I have the tendency to "volunteer" for too much, and end up making myself crazy trying to do it all. So from today, "I'm sorry, I can't help you with that" is going to enter my vocabulary.
- Plan the work, and work the plan. This is my resolution to work on preventing my distractibility (ooh--a shiny!) from getting in the way of my accomplishments. Even if it means turning off Twitter. Or, god-forbid, my music.
- Honor those around me. I have been utterly blessed by a large circle of fabulous people--at work, at home, and in my virtual life. I need to thank them, more. Starting now. So thank you.
That's it. I'm limiting this to three, so that I don't overcommit myself (see resolution number 1).
