Well, this year, I decided on something a little different. Yeah, I do want and need to lose weight (50 lbs to be exact) but I am not going to make a resolution to do that. I have decided that my resolution this year is to stick to the plans I make.
What does this mean? It means that if I make a plan to go to the gym 3 times a week, I go to the gym 3 times a week. If I plan on taking a trip to Seattle in April, I am going to take a trip to Seattle in April. If I plan to do a Mary Kay Income Producing Activity (facial, class, etc), I am going to do just that. I am planning on spending more time on myself this year and not letting work take over my life.
In the past, I have bought planners and filled them up, then never referred back to them or ever really used them again. This year, I bought a wonderful planner at Staples that is large enough for my handwriting, but small enough to fit in my purse. It has the month pages, and then 2 pages per day. There is a section to write down what I need to do each day, and a space for keeping track of those projects throughout the day. How much time I spend on each one, and whether I got them done or not. There is also a section for each day that has hourly spaces for me to fill in. I LOVE this planner and lay it open on my desk every day to keep track of my day.
I am definitely looking forward to seeing what 2010 brings and if I am actually able to stick to my plans. What are your resolutions?
