The Mr. and I, New Years Eve in snowy Central Park
As for my 2010 self-improvement plans... I made an executive decision not to commit to any official New Years Resolutions this time around. Frankly, the thought of setting some hugs goals for myself this year really stressed me out. I was a huge whopping failure with the resolutions I set for myself this time last year- there was nothing more humbling that going over this list and realizing I didn't do a single, solitary thing I set out to do (well, besides get married, of course!). Sure, I read a little bit more than the year before. I tamed the wild stacks of papers strewn all over our old apartment, but only because I moved halfway through the year and was absolutely forced to. And as for the 'eBay Guru' status- I donated everything I planned on selling to Goodwill during the move, and just tried eBay for the*first* time (and won!) yesterday.
The Hype 'Jackie' Zip-Top Satchel, purchased new @ 70% off of the original purchase price! Super swoon.
What I've decided to focus on this year instead is a bit of self-reflection. Namely, 2010 i going to be the year I figure out WHY I never stick to a goal or resolution I set for myself. This may sound silly, or like a bit of a cop-out, but I really think my lack of self-imposed accomplishment needs some serious contemplation. Is it a matter of learning how to repriortize? Probably. A lack of understanding how to set the perfect SMART goal? Sure. A bit of laziness? Abso-freaking-lutely.
So, Dear Reader, why don't you help me kick off the big 2010- how do you go about setting and achieving goals for yourself?
