Are you trying to make changes this year? It might help if you look closely at your goals. Are they goals based on other people’s expectations or standards? Goals based on advertising messages we’re fed every day? Or are you aiming for something that came to you in stillness, when you were very quiet and could hear your self speak? And if you heard this plea, what are you going to do to achieve it?
Write it down.
Writing forces you to articulate the answer. Otherwise, it’s a fuzzy idea in motion. Nail it to your intentions by defining it. And move forward into this new year–and into each new breath–with actions aligned with your 2009 destination.
