I wrote yesterday about my progress in 2012 and the fact that I could have done better. Whilst probably a bit harsh, being hard on myself is often a good catalyst for pushing me forward and so today I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about 2013.

I actually wrote quite a long, long post (not exactly practicing brevity!) about how I feel about goals at the moment.

In this long post I quoted two posts I wrote early in 2012 – Having No Goals – a U Turn? and No Goals (I didn’t follow through on these).

After reading the above posts a few times I realised I was saying nothing different – I feel exactly the same a year later.

So I am now going to stick to having no personal goals (I deleted all of my documents related to goals) and will have just one focus per month – that’s all I care about.

I will still create a plan for each day and it will of course contain several things (its actually easier to be realistic over a short period of time)– but ultimately all I care about is going to bed feeling good about what I did and having enjoyed doing it.

My focus for January will simply be getting back into the habit of rising early and planning out an awesome day – I’ve fallen out of this habit lately and I know it’s the cornerstone for success.

It’ll be interesting to see how I feel about things at the end of January.

Lastly – Happy New Year! 🙂
