Yesterday we took the time to reflect on the goals and resolutions we had for this year. We did this in a light and easy way–no condemnation, no kicking ourselves.
What did you discover?
If you’re like me, you probably have three groups: In the first group are those goals and resolutions that you completed and have crossed off your list. The second group are those that you made some progress on and you’ll probably have to carry these over to the new year in order to finish them. The third group is the one that contains all the goals and resolutions you totally forgot about or that you worked on for a few days or a week or two and then put off to the side.
Here is part of my categorized list:
First group (goals I accomplished): left a toxic job
Second group (goals I’ve made progress on but have not completed): total reorganization of my home from attic to basement
Third group (goals I haven’t done much on at all): redo the landscaping at my home.
If you haven’t categorized the goals and resolutions that you looked at yesterday, then do that now. It’s important to do this because this list will help us laser in on the things that are important to us. We’ll be talking about this in the next few days so keep this categorized list handy!
This exercise is worth the time and effort. Remember, though, to keep it light and easy!
You can do it!
Feel free to share part of your categorized list in the comments below. Thanks!
