I have been thinking about the goals I set earlier this year, both the ones I met and the ones I didn't meet. I'm over the latter (and there are a few of them), yet I feel positive, satisfied and energized about the things I accomplished in 2009. I know that some goals were not accomplished because they should never have been set. Maybe they were unrealistic or unnecessary, or diverted focus from things that were really important.
Has the same thing happened to you? Would it be a good exercise to share Just One Thing you want to accomplish in 2010 right here in the comments section of this blog? Just one thing? One truly important thing?
I've decided to share my Just One Thing here. It's not the only important goal I am setting at this time in my life. But it is important, and achieving it is necessary in order for me to be as satisfied this time next year as I am right now.
My Just One Thing
I will take at least one 3-day vacation from everything business and family related in 2010.
Seventy-two straight hours of just me. No laptop, no business reading materials, no goal setting or planning. My husband will know where I am, but he will call me only in an emergency, and we will agree in advance on what constitutes an emergency. I know I will have his support and I feel I will have yours too.
I will check in with you periodically here to report progress toward my Just One Thing. Meanwhile, if you have any thoughts, comments or suggestions for how this busy wife, mom and entrepreneur can make this happen, please let me know in the comments.
Question: What's your “Just One Thing?” Will you share it with us and let us know how you progress? How can we help you accomplish your goal?
