Well, as all good things must the year is coming a lot closer to the end. As of today there is just 90 days left this year. Which is just under one quarter of the year. I know for a fact that i have not to this point really even achieved half of what i would have liked to this year.
While there are some areas that have done as expected if not better, for example this blog, it was something i wanted but not something that i had really seriously thought about. I registered the domain name years ago, and had played with the idea of a blog for a number of those years, but had never got to doing anything. This year even if infrequent (though i am working on that) i have started the blog.
On the opposite note, i have had many failing’s in what i had hoped to achieve. While i am doing financially quite well, for the most part i am far from achieving most of the goals that i set myself. While i wont go into depth on what the goals were, me failing them can mostly be attributed to not taking the actions i knew i needed to take for them.
While i can accept that i have little time left this year to achieve any goals, i really do not think that i can accept myself failing to achieve goals again. So rather then take the approach that some may take at this time and either set some big lofty end of year goals or try and put every ounce of effort into meeting the goals. I am going to be a little different, because to be honest meeting the goals now, although possible would be like starting a new year and saying lets just triple the targets from last year.
The path that i am going to take is to put in a much needed think tank period and really come up with some idea’s and solutions to ensure the goals that i set myself next year do not go the same way. I know i need to do some thinking, planning and organization, but rather then wait until January 1st 2009, i am starting that planning now so come day 1 i hit the ground running.
