The year is quickly coming to a close, which means resolutions time. As usual mine are focused on getting organized (a never-ending battle), better health and financial goals. I think instead of lists this year, I'm going to focus on the right mindset.
So here's the plan:
First, I'll have a better attitude. Even though it might seem like EVERYTHING is going wrong sometimes, I won't give in and wallow - despite the fact that a good wallow can be tempting.
Second, I won't sweat the little things. So my daughter sometimes chooses outfits so mismatched they make my eyes cross. So our snotty cat is obsessed with sharpening her claws in one random spot in our living room (despite my constant attempts at covering it so she can't get at it). So the pretty tan interior of my car doesn't look so new and pretty anymore no matter how much I scrub. So what.
Third, I'll take things one at a time. I want to be better organized - with everything from bill paying to my closets. But it can't all be done in a day. Boo. So my goal is to hack at these things a little at a time until the effort pays off.
OK, I guess I made a list after all. But I like lists. Whatever works. If you have goals, lists, ambitions or plans for 2010 that you'd like to share, please make a comment or shoot me an e-mail at jdean@PE.com and I'd be happy to post.
