2011 – A Year of Challenge

January 2, 2011

New Year’s has always allowed me to spend time in self analysis and decide what changes to make.  I reflect on what I did and didn’t do during the previous year.  Why I ask, is there always so many things to ‘fix’?  I remember when it was biting my fingernails….that one I’m glad to report reached permanent success.  Some of the patterns will be personal, and probably some professional.

Since change of any pattern takes about a month I decided to take every month and make habitual changes that seem to hang me up in my daily life.  Sad to say, there have been many years where I started with the same resolution because I never got it done.  Saying that and understanding how hard it is to make a change, the habit or behavior I will select will not be earth-shaking but practical.   First on my list is part of the daily routine that has become chaos.  I don’t know what it will be next month, but with the success I anticipate in breaking a couple of bad habits I expect to set another challenge.

I may even ask trusted friends to point out the areas where I seem to be less than par.  However, that could be a risky, vulnerable position so I may wait on that.  Change can also require courage so I may just work up to it.

Regardless of the measure of success, I trust I can do better in the new year.  I challenge you to set the standard of your life, your values a little higher – enough to make you stretch.  I resolve to get out of the comfort zone this year!  How about you?
