Here we are, almost at the end of another year and as usual I try to take time to think about what I have done and my plans for the new year.
I was looking back at some of my posts from around 12 moths ago and although I have achieved a lot this year, some of my lofty ideals did not come to fruition. You can check out my goals here. The photo project was an epic failure but everything else (and much besides was done).
The organising for Christmas also fell by the wayside but it was all achieved before 25th December. My goal is to do better in 2013.
The important thing when you find that the achievement did not measure up to the goal you set is to simply pick yourself up, dust off and try again. That is what I love about a new year – it is a clean slate.
I have my 2013 diary and have resolved to use it properly this year instead of cluttering my brain with 1001 things I have to remember. An Excel spreadsheet is set up to record our spending so that we can see where the money goes. The emails are sorted/deleted/archived/actioned/unsubscribed as required and I will keep this up-to-date each week.
Our holiday in March is planned and booked.
How was your 2012? What do you plan to achieve or do differently next year?
