Bloated, tired and resolute. That’s how many of us feel as we ring in the new year – determined that this time the resolutions will stick. I WILL lose the weight. I WILL exercise regularly. I WILL get that job. I WILL start that business.
The year usually starts off with us going hard and fast after our resolutions, but within a few weeks for most, it turns back in to business as usual.
For me personally, it will be awfully tough to top 2015. I married the woman I love, which would have made it a great year if nothing else happened.
But a lot more did happen. I published a book and produced a musical that I’d written. I launched a new web site for the book, defined a new consulting service and started an online, on-demand radio program named after the book.
I also got a new hip, and although major surgery like that is no fun and I am still improving from it, I am looking very forward to walking again without pain.
Yes, 2015 was a good year. What will 2016 be like? Who knows? But a couple of good things in the plans include the marriage of 2 of our kids this coming Fall.
And there is the magic word – “plans.”
Whatever your resolutions or goals and objectives this year, without a plan for getting there, you’ll be making the same resolutions net year. No matter what you want to accomplish, it all begins with a plan.
Here’s to making this New Year the year you begin with a plan.
