It’s hard to believe how fast 2012 is winding down to a whirlwind close. It seems like just yesterday many of us were all powered up in setting our New Years resolutions of the many things we hoped to accomplish in 2012. Or for some simply just making plans to strike out at a long sought after aspiration and have it take shape in our lives.
I know for me my only resolution at the beginning of 2012 was to not make any resolutions for once. It was my hope that by switching up the age-old New Years’ resolution “tradition” that I would not tie myself to or let down by self-imposed deadlines. Or as I have unfortunately been prone to in the past of making self promises and goals then becoming bound by disappointment after not following through with them.
So at this point I can’t help but smile that my 2012 change-up has worked. It hasn’t been filled with broken or empty promises to myself. Instead I’ve just taken each day as it comes, however it comes, without filling it with any unrealistic and pretentious planning. For me this has brought out steadfast productivity in both my personal and professional life which has profoundly enhanced both and will undoubtedly become a practice of mine in the coming years ahead.
So now that I’m done with my congratulatory party for one, I’m curious about if anyone else tried any spur of the moment game changers this year in regards to reaching new or old goals or resolutions so far in 2012. And if so, what’s been your crowning moment so far?
