2014 is going to be an interesting year. I will officially start my own business and be expected to make some money at it. The idea of being my own boss is scary and exciting. It will be a year full of hard work and long hours. I will be learning new things and trying to gain expertise as quickly as possible.
With that in mind, what are my plans for the coming year?
I want to write 52 blog posts this year. That’s an average of one a week. One of the key things to writing regular blogs is to have some sort of plan. I still have a bunch of posts to write regarding the ITP classes that have already happened and I will have some updates about my playwriting adventures. I definitely have enough ideas for the first 26 blogs – I just have to write them!
I want to stay in touch with family and friends. With two of my children being far away, I’ve really come to appreciate Skype and being able to just touch base. It’s so easy to get involved with day to day life that we lose track of the people we care about. I will try to use email, Skype, Facebook, telephone, and the good old face to face talking to be a bit more communicative to my circle of family and friends. So, I’m going to make a list of my family and friends and contact them in some way during the year. If you want to be on the list, let me know. 😉
In terms of health, I’m not going to set a weight loss goal this year. I will try to do 10 minutes of exercise a day. That’s it. If I get in more exercise, that would be wonderful. But a day will be a success if I was able to stretch or jump around or dance to a song for 10 minutes.
There. That’s three things I want to do this year. I will do quarterly checkpoints to see how I’m doing. My first review will be March 31. Hey, one more blog post, right?
Making small changes is the key to being able to make big changes. And small changes don’t seem so daunting. What small changes will you make for 2014?
