My Birthday is today...
Tuesday, December 29, 2009
My birthday just happens to come in time of year when everyone is contemplating New Year's Resolutions... It's great to ponder the things you want to accomplish during the coming year... but...
I hate New Year's Resolutions. People have very high expectations of what they can accomplish, but typical resolutions do not usually include a plan to "get there!" and that has always spelled out the unatainable. Resolutions turn into wishful thinking.
People like me need to make "SMART" GOALS instead, like corporations teach their leaders:
Any thing worth doing is worth having a plan for, and following through on it.
I've always considered my birthday my own personal "accountability" day... I just wish it came during the middle of the year so I could have New Year's AND a birthday to see where I've been and where I'm going! Now THAT'S wishful thinking! LOL
I'm using my SP calendar to make an appointment for every three months on the 29th, so I can take a look at how my goals are going... I want this year to be one where my plans come to fruition!
Happy Birthday, 2010~ and Happy Birthday to me! LOL
