Y.I. Wednesday: Why I Ditched My New Year’s Resolution List

Because I always seemed to either forget about them or give up on them….I have left my long standing New Year’s Resolutions at the door.

I mean, yes, I believe in change (oh, do I) but, I truly think it’s too easy to get overwhelmed working on a whole bunch of things at once…

Hence Why I ditched my New Year’s Resolution list last year and replaced it with One Word.

Recently, I posted a few things about this One Word approach and I hope you will check it out.

Easy, but not too easy. Simplified, but not simple…I find it to be just right.

During the year, I feel that I work on the things I need to work on, you know, make adjustments as I go.
So, when New Year’s comes around I usually over-do-it by making a big long list of things and get overloaded. Then,  I’m discouraged after just a short time…like by February 1st (Ugh).

So, last year, I decided to just stick to one word all year long that helped me focus better on almost anything I was doing.

Read about 2011’s word: Grace

This time I chose Goals for 2012!

Last Year I chose Grace.
Read how I did:

The trick will be, keeping Grace in action, 
while incorporating Goals…
It’s both exciting and scary!

Sounds tricky…
But, I think I’m up for the challenge.

No pain, no gain, right?

Throughout 2012, I will post updates and follow up stories about how I’m doing with my Goals.
Come back next week to find out how I plan on using this word!

I have already begun  my Goal list for the year…
and that’s just the beginning
