Early morning, January 1, 2017.
Although it is a completely arbitrary date and not particularly significant in any way, the beginning of the new year seems to be as good a time as any to review and plan. And that’s always been my plan – to review and plan. And I’m pretty good at it. I can plan with the best of them. I have excel spreadsheets, lists, and planners of all of the things that I need to do. And in priority order. I’ve set it up so that I can re-prioritize and I do that regularly because priorities change. Sometimes they change on a daily basis.
One of my (many) flaws is that I live in the world of Quadrant One – the critical world. I am good at getting things done that are important and urgent – those things that will bite me on the ass if they don’t get done. But that’s where I slow down, and often come to a grinding halt. Once the urgency is gone, my energy fades. This I have to change.
This isn’t a new revelation. I’ve been this way for most of my life and I’ve made a few inroads toward improvement. This is what I have to continue – improvement. I have to continue to get better about getting shit done.
So, that’s my New Year’s resolution. I’ll continue to try to improve. There are too many facets of improvement to list here (they’re on my spreadsheet) and I’m not adding any big categories. I’m just going to continue to try to get better.
Every day. In some way. I’ll do something important.
