(Old school Soviet space/Happy New Year posters from Roscosmos’s FB page)
I’m not going to review last year’s resolutions because I failed pretty miserably at most of them. I failed pretty bad at my 12 by 2012 too. Ah well. I’m not bothered. I like to set goals, and it’s good to have something to work towards.
I think the main problem with listing them here on my blog is that I forget about them after I post! So after I write down this list, I’m going to print it out and stick it somewhere that I’ll see it. I’m also going to go by quarters this year. Instead of year-long goals, for now I’m going to think about what I want to get done between now and the end of March:
Complete my M.A. project. Because seriously, it’s never going to get done if I don’t do it this year. I won’t complete it by March, obviously, but I need to make significant progress. This should take top priority.
Read 4 books. Reading is pretty much the only resolution I completed 100% last year.
Sew myself a skirt. I’ve found a few patterns that should work well for me but I keep putting this one off because I have a couple other projects to finish. But this is the one I really want to do, so why not just do it?
Declutter/clean up the study. It’s a big task. I do a little bit, and then give up for a while because it never seems like I make any headway. This is one of those things that would probably benefit from the “30 minutes a day” strategy. Do a little bit every day.
That seems like a good start for 2012!
