Almost half way through November. Where did the year go?
It is time for me to clean up my list. Go through and find the items lost amongst tasks crossed off, get all the to still be done on a new page. I do this in November because December is usually busy and it’s so easy to put it off. To start he New Year with a neat list, all in order always makes me feel better.
It is also time to start getting my 2012 accomplishment list together. Ten things I want to accomplish by the end of the year. I make one every year and it usually involves, savings, a trip, something I want to learn, a book to read. Things to reach for, things to cross off the BIG to do list, things you’ve always wanted to learn, whatever.
I didn’t have one last year. It was the first time in many years that I didn’t get around to doing one.
My Grandfather in 2010 had a series of strokes and passed away December 13, 2011. So he was my priority and then after he passed away the list was the last thing on my mind. Also I didn’t need a travel goal as the trip for 2011 was to take my Granddad and my Granny (who had passed away 10 years ago) home to Sidmouth, Devon and scatter their ashes. Although they had lived in Canada for over 40 years, Sidmouth was their home. I’ll talk more about that trip another time.
So for 2012 I’m back on my list kick. Ten things to accomplish. Then I will write them out and keep them where I can see them. This way they are always on my mind.
Often the list comes from items on the master list, items that have been kicking around on the list for years. New things can be added, they are just ten things you want to finish.
On New Years I’ll unveil my list for 2013 and then I’ll keep you updated on my progress.
Do you make a list? What’s on yours?
