Every year around this time, in fact, exactly at this time, the Day After Christmas, I begin to compile my list of things to do in the New Year. I don't like calling them 'resolutions' as I prefer the term goals. I get very detailed. For instance, I'll have a section on guitar playing. In that section, I'll have things like 'be able to play this piece at this many BPM's.' I then break down how to get there. I'm not a huge Dr. Phil fan, but one thing he said always stuck with me. Basically, to paraphrase he said 'the commonality between successful people is they can each define what success looks like to them.' So, for instance, this year I am going to finish my book. In fact, I will be giving notice at my job on Jan 15, which will give my boss time to find someone and for me to train them. I then plan on taking 4-8 weeks off to work on my book. I have many more goals and as I compile them, I may throw them up here. FOCUS: What are your goals for the coming year? Trivial? Life Changing? Fun? Serious? Whatever, hit me with them.
