For many years I have not followed the pretty common practice of making New Year's Resolutions because whenever I did make Resolutions, I did not succeed at keeping them or seeing them through. A few weeks ago I decided to give Resolutions another try.
Now, I know, Resolutions (like goals and targets) are most likely to succeed if they are specific (quantified, measurable, achievable). But as my list of Resolutions grew, I realized that very few on the list are specific. I also know the list should be short...
Realizing the shortcomings of my List of Resolutions, here it is:
- Plan Better
- Fret Less
- Do More:
- Sailing (day sails, boat camping, exploring)
- Exercise (to improve physical and mental health)
- Woodworking (to improve skills and results)
- Cooking and Baking (try new recipes; expand our food horizons)
- Communication (with children, siblings, family and friends)
- Reading (more & more meaningful books; learn)
