This year I won’t be. At least not as I have done it before.
You see, I always took on too much, then exhausted from the last quarter of the previous year, did nothing until August, when I would panic that I hadn’t gotten to my goals yet.
This year I’m breaking it down.
I typically do a list of 100 things to accomplish during the year. This year, instead of “read 12 nonfiction books” there will be 12 entries that say “read a nonfiction book”.
I will also make sure that I don’t overload myself with things like “scrapbook everything outstanding.” That might be possible if I had everything ready to go, and tons of time, but I don’t.
I am going to take it easy on myself so that I have plenty of time to do what strikes my fancy. So instead of locking myself into a rigid schedule of making desserts every other month, we might have two desserts in one month (gasp!)
I’m looking forward to the new year.
