We spoke today of goals for 2013. Since the discussion occurred in the midst of a networking group of professionals, we chose primarily our business goals. Thinking about setting my life in a forward motion based on some pre-set ideas and “goals” feels a bit intimidating…at least today.
The discussion was interesting, as some had clear, written, measurable thoughts on the subject. Others had abstract, but good, ideas on some basic fundamentals of business. A few had written goals for each area of life, but only shared the applicable ones with the group. I found myself somewhere in the middle of the pack. My thoughts have not yet connected with the calendar. I feel as though I am already behind in the game of 2013.
I am not alone. As we listened and read of the fiscal cliff in recent days, we realize that procrastination is a common thread that binds us together. Lesson observed and learned. “Do it now” is a mantra that would serve me well.
And so I proceed on day 3 of this year that lies ahead. There is much to be learned, as I continually have more questions than answers. Oh, to be in my twenties again, when I knew everything! Today, I will enjoy cooking dinner for my family. I will laugh my way through zumba. I shall be grateful for one more day to try to figure out the path that lies before me.
Blessings to you~
