A lot of people I’ve spoken to in the last few days have said, “I don’t do new year’s resolutions, but I might start/stop/continue/change x”. Even people who don’t like the formality and cliche of the new year’s resolution seem to recognise the ticking over of the year as a time to reflect and make changes.
I love the idea of using this time to think about where I’ve been in my year, and where the coming year might take me. I want to learn from mistakes made over the past twelve months, and shape the direction of my adventures for the next twelve.
I was discussing goal setting with a friend over coffee the other day. It’s something that’s important to us both and we had an earnest and illuminating conversation about it. So with thanks to Erin, I will answer three questions about 2011:
- What do I want to do?
- Who do I want to be?
- What am I looking for?
I’m going to think on these and write more about them in the next few days.
