Today’s daily prompt is called Resolved and it asks;
Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?
This is something I talked about when I did my end of year review for 2015 and I looked back at how well I did with the goals I set myself for the year. Out of 10 (because 10 is a nice round number) I decided that I had managed to achieve just two of them and even then I was being very very generous to myself. A measly success rate of just 20%. Still it could have been worse, I could have achieved none of them, it’s important to always look on the positive side of things.
And if I can achieve just three of my goals for 2016 it’ll be an improvement over 2015. So far those goals are going so-so but it’s let be fair 2016 is barely six days old so I still have time to turn it around. Hmm it’s just possible that it’s that attitude that ensures I rarely ever complete any of my goals. I should take a long hard look in the mirror.
You know what I just realised. I can’t even remember half the goals I’ve set myself for 2016. That might also be a reason why I am going to struggle with them.
OK I just took a look at them to remind myself and I really need to work on number 6 and get myself organised better, and since I actually feel somewhat motivated I am going to do just that. I am going to create myself a timetable or calendar or schedule or something like that, with colour coded boxes because you must have colour coded boxes, to help myself do just that. Now I just need some nice pens and some paper. Already I can feel this getting away from me.
