I don’t have any New Year’s Resolutions for many years already because I never actually achieved them. These recent years, I choose to go with list-making of attainable goals, and even if I don’t accomplish it within certain time frame, it is worthy to see that I’m making a progress, regardless big or small. It’s also the time to anticipate changes and opportunities for growth.
In last December, I spent some time reading the first few chapters from Gretchen’s book. The author reiterated about how every new year resolution should always begins with a preparation in the first place, and I completely agree with her. For that reason, during first few weeks of the year, this is what I have been engaging from my end.
At the time I started to list down my goals, the list became excessively lengthy and overly ambitious eventually. I neglected to consider the strategies, and only later realized I dreamt too much out of it without literally planning about it precisely. Some may already have a list of 101 things to do, or to accomplish this year, except for me. This year, I intent to step back, focus on what’s more important and choose to fix wisely – taking my best time to spread out the master plan and attaining smaller steps gradually.
