It is that time of the year again…. when one should take stock. For me 2005 was the first time that i had set yearly goals [ read a new year resolution].
I had set many goals. They covered various fields like health, work, learning japanese, learning to swim, teaching Kuhu[my daughter] etc …
I did not achieve all that I had written down. But I made a lot of progress in all of them.
At the end of the year, I am in a position to say that for me this year was a lot better than the previous years… cos i had set some parameters to measure my performance against. I had those goals guiding me throughout the year, as i used to check my performace against them, every monthend.
I came across this quote today by Karen Lamb :
A year from now you may wish you had started today.
I am happy that I had started doing some things last year. At the same time, I want to add a few more this year.
I will spend a few hours tomorrow to write my goals for the year 2006.
I want to do so much… and breaking all of that down into smaller tasks makes it a lot easier to achieve.
