Checking in on Your New Year’s Goals

Posted Jan 24 2013 1:30pm

It’s almost the end of the month. How are you doing with your New Year’s goals?

“What’s the BIG deal?” you ask. It’s only a New Year.

We’ll it is a BIG deal. Read the opening letter in this month’s  The Caregiver’s Voice Newsletter to learn why.

For the rest of us who mapped out the major roads of our journey this year, what steps have you taken to be closer to at least ONE of your goals?

Five goals have been gnawing at me. They are listed here with my progress report in parentheses. And it’s only the first month of the year.

  1. Bring you a more user-friendly  website  and newsletter.
    Working with Roberto Robles of SD Internet Marketing. Click on “website” to see a rough look of it then share your comments. Along with this, I am working with Jessie Phillips of Jessie Design to create a new logo.
  2. Clear out 25% more of the clutter in my home office to free up more time to spend face-to-face with people like you.
    This is a LOT! Two boxes of paperwork plus magazines and books piled on the boxes. I’m scared, but I know it will make me feel sooooo much better. So far, I’ve gotten through about an inch.
  3. Mexico in 2006Help you manage the clutter in your life with a new book (44 years in the making), Stuffology 101: Get Your Mind Out of the Clutter.
    Almost finished. Co-author, Eric Riddle and I keep pushing this date back–from November 2012 to Spring 2013 (won’t happen), but it will be released in 2013. This week I’m talking with my long-time book cover designer, Julia Ryan.
  4. Speak at more venues this year.
    I should have quantified this. Still mulling this one over.
  5. PERSONAL: Enjoy a tropical island getaway plus two nights in one of those over-the-water bungalows.
    I am surprised how many ads I’ve seen since I put this goal in writing. For example, an Auckland and Tahiti vacation with an over the water bungalow for $250 more. Now, I need to decide if this will be a couples vacation or a girls time out. We’ll see what David has to say about this. ;>

What ONE goal do you have for the year? Make it reasonable enough to take steps to achieve it. Together we’ll hold each other accountable. Post it on  The Caregiver’s Voice page on Facebook.

I believe it’s better to make a lot of progress before the first half of the year to carry me over into the end of the year.
