Back and forward

I’ve taken a few days off to spend with my family during the holidays, so haven’t been posting and updating here. Also, I love those Christmas recordings so much that I wanted to leave them at the top for a few days.

During this final week of the year, do you take time to look at the year that’s wrapping up and figure out what went well and what didn’t? Do you make plans for the coming year? I’m not the sort of guy who loves to spend hours creating elaborate plans for the next 1, 2, 5 and 10 years; but I do look at the future year and sent myself some targets. I’ve also realized in the last few years that I find it much more encouraging to have targets that I’m confident I can hit and surpass … rather than setting myself some lofty and unattainable target way out in the distance.

So, for this coming year, my hope it to lose a bit of weight. I’m setting myself a target of a half a pound a week. I know it’s not much, but it’s something that I believe I can not only reach, but perhaps surpass. I’m also raising my billing target by 30% over the target I set for this year. That one may be harder to hit, but again, I think I can reach it and perhaps surpass it.

How about you? What are your goals and targets for 2011?

  1. i’ve never felt i had any control over how much i could predict to make. but i DO have a goal of keeping at least my current level of income, and re-claim some of the time i used to spend reading, watching movies, getting out of the house, and sleeping. that, to me, would be suitable progress.

  2. Rowell,

    I have no illusions that by setting a number I’m hoping to reach that it does anything other than sit there as a target; but I’ve found that identifying what I’m hoping to hit does help focus my mind on what I need to do. I break that big number down into daily bites and then keep track of which days I’m ahead and which days I’m behind those daily bites. Over the course of the year, it’s remarkable how all those little bites add up.

    May you make much progress in your efforts also.

    Be well,
    Bob
