New Decade, New Start

What is it about New Year that makes us want to start afresh? New Year's resolutions abound, lose weight, be more organized, get fit and the like.

The problem with New Year's resolutions is that you start off well, but by February (if you get that far), life has taken over and those resolutions have been set aside. We get too busy, other things are more important, we just forget!

I think part of the problem is that we don't continually revisit those resolutions to see how we are doing, we don't give ourselves attainable goals. You want to lose weight, okay, but how much ... and by when and how are you going to achieve it? You want to be more organized. That's fine, but how are you going to do it? How long is it going to take? You want to get fit? What does that mean to you exactly - couple of pushups or run a marathon?

If you make your goals too big they become overwhelming. Cut them into bitesize pieces and take one step at a time.

Today, in my effort to be more organized, I am going to clean up the studio. It was crazy before the holidays and now I can't find a thing, so my plan for the next couple of days is to kick it into shape and make some valentine's goodies. I'll post them here when they are done.

What are your goals for 2010 and how are you planning to achieve them? Keep us posted
