A New Year’s resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit.
Goals for 2012
- Income: earn enough to pay my fair share of the bills and stop panicking about payments
- Professional development: find / develop a sound professional niche
- Time management: get important things done in time and learn to manage work efficiently
- Marriage: contribute more and pay more attention
- The fun side: develop musically and in other life quality aspects
The goals aren’t independent of each other, but a chain of aspects that impact each other and which all need to be prioritised to solve the situation (or begin to solve it). Common advice says the key to change things for the better is to convert goals into specific, actionable, realistic objectives – and then ‘do it’… step by step.
That’s what I will do in the next posts: convert each goal into specific, actionable objectives. Then I’ll follow up in later posts.
Yes, I know this is April, and it may seem a bit tardy for New Year’s Resolutions. Time management is one of them, if that makes you feel better.
