New Years Resolutions: What happened to yours?
Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Today is Wednesday February 22nd, 2012. I just got done explaining this to a customer when it really hit me. It's almost the end of February! Didn't I have some resolutions to work on?
I remember making a vow to myself that I would take a look at those resolutions once every week to remind myself to work on those. I felt so proud of myself because I knew at the end of the year I would look back and feel proud about the changes I've made this last year. When was the last time I looked at those? I have no clue. Its been so long I can't remember.
What were those resolutions? I remember there being something about setting myself weekly mini goals to help keep me going. Little things I know I can do but I just need to work at more. Things that aren't hard but that make a difference. At the end of the week you look back on those goals and think. Yeah, I did that. You feel confident and like there are many more things that you can do. Those little goals you get done each week help motivate you, keep you motivated and make you feel good about yourself and what you can do. One baby step at a time.
So I've missed at least the whole past month. I haven't been working on my resolutions. Are you feeling the same? You know what I realize? It's never too late to start over. Or to jump back on that train. I'm going to pull out that list tonight and look back over it. Make a few little goals for the rest of the week. I'm going to type of those resolutions and post them everywhere. If I'm not looking at them, I'm not thinking about them and therefore I'm not doing them. So I challenge you. Go find those resolutions, remember those resolutions or create new ones. But make a commitment to get back on track. Put them up in places where you'll see them all the time. On the dash of your car, on your bathroom mirror, on the refrigerator. Every month is a new month, every week a new week, every day a new day and every hour is a new hour. You can start from this moment forward and if you forget or stop or slide backwards, thats ok. Just pick yourself up and start again. 2 steps forward, 1 step back.
