Another year has come and nearly gone, and all across the web people are starting to post year-end best-of lists. Who am I to resist the chance to navel-gaze? So, I’m flipping back through and trying to sum up my year and the changes that happened along the way.
But along with the year-end wrap-up, I’m already thinking about New Year’s resolutions. I make them every year. Few of them get finished in the year. Wash, rinse, repeat. This year, inspired by a friend’s tweet, I’m working on something bigger. A “Make 2011 Great Plan.”
Life is hard enough without making lists of all the flaws I’d like to work on- the usual: lose weight, read more, write more, spend less. But something about the concept of a “make it great” list stuck with me. What if, instead of trying to fix me like a broken vase, I just made a list of all the things that would make the year a great one for me? Experiences, accomplishments, travels, and yes, even purchases.
So, that’s what I’m working on. While I work, what would go on your “Make 2011 Great” list? Or what do you think should go on mine? Operators are standing by.
