I can not recall a year where I have set new year’s resolutions and got to the end of that year and looked back and thought “wow, I really smashed those resolutions!”. Sure I have achieved one or two of those that I have set or I am ‘on the way’ with one or two.
I was at a new year’s day BBQ on the 1st and a friend Michelle asked me. “what are your new
years resolutions for 2012?”. I paused a beat and thought and said “none, I have just turned
40, I have just graduated with my Masters Degree and we have just survived the first 10
months with my 2nd child – I think I have done pretty well.”
This year is the first year in the last ten years where I just don’t feel like I need
to set any resolutions. Yes, there are quasi goals I have set for myself in the back of my
mind which are:
- guitar lessons
– German lessons
– ride bike (road bike)
– be fitter
– surf more
– try for a skiing holiday
Whilst if you read my blog you know I believe in goal setting, I write about it alot, but for me in 2012 I am going to go easy (he says on the 3rd January). Maybe I will change my mind (…there is more study to be done) or maybe I won’t.
I wish you the very best for your contemplation of new years resolutions and all the very best for 2012. Cheers,
