Each year, besides setting all kinds of concrete goals/schedules/to-do lists, I choose some kind of theme to focus on and work toward throughout the year.
How did I do on my 2009 theme? Well, it took me a few minutes to remember what it was. That should tell you the answer right there. Turns out my theme was “Do nothing.” Oh. Riiiiiight. Now I remember. I vowed to regularly inject small periods of “doing nothing” time into my life. Time to just let my brain play, make connection, or rest.
So how did I do? I was an abysmal failure at it. I think I struggled with it through February or March and then kind of gave up. It hasn’t even crossed my mind in eons.
So now I have to decide. Do I try this again (because I DO think it’s an important thing, and one missing from my life)? Or do I just accept that it’s not me and pick a different focus for 2010? What do you think?
And what about you? How’s your goal-setting or theme-making going? Please share if you’d like!
