I like having goals and making lists of those goals. (I really, really like making lists. Its borders on OCD.) It’s taken me a while to get on board the “new year, new goals” track. I feel like a poser when I have January resolutions. For some reason, they are always BIG GOALS, like climb Mt. Everest or lose 75 lbs. Those never work. So instead, I’m just going to set small but important goals for 2012.
Another way in which I think I’ll be successful is either adding or subtracting one thing a week. Instead of looking at a list a mile long I’m going to give myself 1 thing to focus on a week. This will, hopefully, allow me to concentrate fully on the task each day and stop me from being overwhelmed.
