Have you ever come to the end of the year only to find that many of the things you intended to do somehow fell by the wayside and you're pretty much at the same point with them as you were at the end of the previous year? I have.
Then it's hard to get excited about setting new goals because in the back of our minds is the nagging suspicion that it'll just end the same way.
Obviously, it's a busy time, and 18 days isn't very long, so I'm not suggesting setting some humungous task for ourselves--that would be a prescription for more disappointment. But getting a little head start on something you care about could help you feel better about it at the beginning of the year, and build some momentum going into January.
I'LL SHOW YOU MINE
I have one commissioned project to finish by the end of this month, a rewrite of a script that I originally wrote about fifteen years ago, but in addition to that my head-start goal is to finish the manuscript of a children's book I've been working on, on and off, for a while. Having a complete draft of that on January 1 would give me a good feeling.
WANT TO SHOW ME YOURS?
What would do the same for you? Why not add a bit of accountability by adding it in the comments section--I'll check back on January 1!
