At the start of each New Year, it’s pretty common for folks to make resolutions: losing weight, starting better eating habits, going back to school, etc. Unfortunately most resolutions are null and void before the month of January is even over.
I’ve been thinking about what I wanted to do this year, what did I want to accomplish? The more I thought about it, the more I remembered all of the things I was supposed to do in previous years. I think this year I’m going to focus on Completion. Finishing up some of the things that I’ve started. I’ll admit, I’ve had a bad habit of starting a project, slacking off and then starting something else.
First on the list is school. I won’t say how long I’ve been working on a graduate degree, but it’s time I finish.
Next up, all those unfinished home projects. My basement looks like a war zone/ catch-all for all the junk items we haven’t bothered to actually store away properly. Well it needs to be turned into a real family room.
I just saw the power mitre saw that was purchased umpteen years ago because I wanted crown molding in the dining room – and I was sure that I could do it myself (watching too much DIY Network). Well it too needs to be put to use – to actually cut the molding for the dining room.
There are scores of other projects: the garage organization, the gardening, unfinished sewing, the unfinished knitting, and all of the DIY projects that I actually purchased the materials for. This year it’s time to complete them.
While a diet is not on my list of things to complete, I could stand to start getting some exercise in. Now if someone can tell me what home exercise routines I need to do to get my legs to look like Naomi Campbell’s I’d be eternally grateful. LOL! Seriously…
What are you looking to Complete this year?
