Happy 2016

Well, here we are again, on to a new year.

How was your 2015, and where do you see yourself heading in 2016? Do you make resolutions, and if you do, do they work or have you disregarded that plan over the years.

I have found that rather than making resolutions for this new year, I’d rather take the goals that I have in steps rather than being hard on myself if they are not accomplished in a timely manner. I could say that I’m making a resolution to write more articles for this blog this year, or I could say that I’m going to get to the gym at least three times a week, but I won’t. Instead, I will do the best I can and take life one day at a time.

My idea is this: Think about all of the accomplishments you’ve made in the past year rather than what you feel you didn’t do and what you should have done, both personally and professionally. Why do we put pressure on ourselves. If you have a goal that is extremely important for you to accomplish this year, but maybe it feels too far-fetched, break it down. Take it in steps.

In this age of constantly changing technology and so much information being given to us every day, there will be interruptions. That’s just life. I’d rather say, Okay. I didn’t get this particular project completed today as I had intended to, but I am learning to be more flexible, and I’m proud of myself for what I did accomplish.

So here’s a toast to what you did accomplish in 2015, and what about what you didn’t accomplish? Let it go.

I’m wishing for all of us, a healthy, happy, joyous, fulfilling and successful 2016. From where I’m sitting right now, it’s onward and upward!
