A Plan for 2015
My New Year’s resolutions are to start each day with a cup of good, cream-laced coffee, write in my daily journal, and plan my day.
These are resolutions I finally think I can keep, unlike my usual January First list of goals in which I promised to write four hours a day, take a daily two-mile walk, don’t play computer games, do more art, and don’t forget any family members’ birthdays (my kids tell me I’m better at remembering where and when I first saw a bird species than their birthdays). These resolutions, however, are just the tip of the iceberg of the ones I made over the years – and broke before the first week in January was over.
This year’s resolution to plan my day was inspired by one of the 20 suggestions I came across in an article on how writers can be more productive. Reading it was an AHA moment for me. I suddenly realized that my days were always more productive when I started them with a plan, and especially when the list of tasks on it were prioritized.
Today’s plan included writing this blog as a first priority. I want to get back to daily blogging because I find it easier than writing one less frequently. But if I do miss a day or two in 2015, at least I won’t be breaking a New Year’s resolution.
So what are your New Year’s resolutions?
