I have been deliberating about whether to set New Year’s Resolutions for 2011, after having had many many years of them not really working for me and indeed making me disillusioned with myself. Thank you to everyone who has sent me advice and encouragement on this subject.
My conclusion is that I am going to have overall themes rather than resolutions for 2011 and then add to these monthly achievable goals to move myself forward. As I was typing those words this felt absolutely the right way to go.
So my overall themes will be:
Fitness – with the view to increasing my stamina and body tone.
Health – aimed at reducing my weight and sorting out niggly small health problems.
Writing – increasing my output, finishing projects and marketing my work.
This sounds much more positive than the resolution stick to beat myself with. What do you think?
