A serious (for me) countdown has begun as I realize I am just a month away from another milestone in my life… Another birthday. Normally I would celebrate another passing year by curling up under my desk and sobbing uncontrollably while agonizing over what should have been, but this year will be different. So says I– the guy with about a month to prevent the rue of years-passed.
OK, so it turns out that it is a lot easier to say that things will be different than to actually make things different. I need goals. I need a plan to achieve those goals. I need to take action on my plan. I need to review the effects of my actions (monitor progress or the lack of it). I need to modify my actions and my plan as I go to become more efficient at achieving my goals. I need to continue this progress beyond successfully achieving my set goals. I need to have been doing this all along. I really need to get started.
In shorter verbosity, I’m one needy individual.
How do I satisfy a need? Simple answer: get. These next 30 days will be all about getting; getting my goals written down, getting my plan devised, getting to action, getting my actions reviewed, and getting my plan adjustments in play as needed.
Today is B-minus-31. The calendar is…er…ticking? Go Steve, go!
