I just love the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. I usually try to spend time cleaning out/cleaning up and planning. This year, I didn’t really, because I was visiting my parents in Walla Walla, Washington until the 28th and mostly I’ve been relaxing since I’ve been home.
But here it is the first day of the year and I find myself wanting to write down goals, figure out systems for making life easier, and (still) cleaning out/cleaning up. My office needs some major help, which I’d hoped to accomplish yesterday. So the plan today is see how much progress I can make in decluttering and straightening up my office in half a day and spend the other half knitting and/or filling in my notebook at the wonderful knitting social community, Ravelry.
One of my goals for 2008 is more regular blogging, so starting my day by posting here seemed appropriate. I think the theme of 2008 for me is going to be time management. That seems to be my biggest challenge. As my business has grown, I’ve had some difficulty balancing the work obligations (working with clients, keeping up with my training and education, staying on top of my NAPO St. Louis responsibilities, and keeping my business running smoothly) and my personal life (keeping a semblance of order in the house, doing things with and for family and friends, having fun and, of course, knitting). If I can master that balance in 2008, I’ll be very, very pleased. In any event, my trying to come up with solutions to achieve that balance should be helpful to my clients!
As we contemplate this new year, I wish for you the opportunity to set and accomplish goals that will make you really happy.
