Reflecting on 2009
Monday, December 28, 2009
What complicated times we live in! I am trying to hone down into one or two paragraphs the most important things to reflect upon from 2009, and I have come to the conclusion that I can't do that. So I'll reflect, basically, on that.
I have a major fault: I take on too much. This is not an unusual problem. And, it isn't really a problem unless I can't finish what I take on, or if what I'm doing isn't done to the best outcome because I'm so busy.
It would be helpful for 2010, I think, to keep myself less burdened and more focused. Maybe this means fewer Spark Teams. Maybe this means delegating more of what I do. Maybe it even means being more realistic about what I can really achieve.
This past year I rarely got enough sleep. So, goal #1: sleep.
This past year I lost very little weight. Goal #2: lose some weight, but keep the expectation realistic. Maybe 10 pounds.
I see a trend developing. So, my major goals, for now, are to simplify and to pursue realistic goals.
