Happy 2013! Are you starting some new goals or resolutions today? I have tried both of those. I haven’t been very successful at new years goals and resolutions for one simple reason. I have always tried to do too much at one time. What can I say? I like dreaming big. This year I am trying something different.
I am going to start small. Rinse and repeat.
I have a long list of new habits and goals, but I am not going to try to kick them all off on January 1 and burn myself out by week 3.
The other struggle I have with starting new habits is that I am a procrastinator and a perfectionist. So I always have a reason not to start. No reason is good enough anymore. I am going to focus more this year on doing instead of planning on doing.
This blog has been sporadic at best. That is not what I intended it to be. I hope to bring you more consistent content in 2013. Even if the perfectionist inside of me is afraid to publish because it isn’t perfect yet. So I hope you will hang in there with me through the not perfect content to get to a few valuable nuggets that may come out of this blog.
That is how I am kicking off 2013. Not with a bunch of resolutions that are difficult to start and keep all at one time. I am going to start small and work my way up.
What are you going to start or stop in 2013?
