Before I could set goals for next year, it was important to take a moment and look back. Almost a year ago I listed plans for 2010 and published them here. How did I do?
I can tell you my plan to lose 25 pounds was a complete bust. I probably even gained a little weight (although health issues contributed to that). I’m not giving up thought so it’s time to rethink how to be successful in the new year.
The other goal in the category was to put up pictures in the living room and window coverings in the kitchen. I would say it’s a success in both rooms.
The kitchen has a brand new blinds over the sink that had to be made to measure. I could put more on the walls in the living room but at least it doesn’t look like we just moved in anymore!
Just like the above category, we had success and failure with financial goals. I made tremendous progress on my debt snowball. After next week, there will only be one debt (other than the mortgage) left.
The goal to prepare wills fell by the wayside. It’s a chore we never got around to.
Major success in this category! One goal was to improve the blog design. My new theme was installed in March and I’ve been tweaking it ever since. I even made myself a new header.
I was hoping to reach 100 subscribers by year’s end. It seemed like a stretch because I had 14 at the time. (yes, you read that right.) Well, today’s feedburner count was 315!
A Good Year
There were failures on the list but a whole lot of success. Thank you so much for your comments, guidance and company here throughout the year. It keeps me motivated and I hope we all learn together.
Come back Friday to find out what’s in store for 2011! How was your year?
