I survived my solo New Year's Eve. I'm happy to report that I watched/finished three of the movies I rented. I made a good effort to watch The American. Horrible. I did not like the movie at all. I turned it off about 20 minutes into the movie. You know, sometimes you can just tell a movie is a stinker and it's not worth your time. I know you agree.
So, now we are 4-5 days, depending on where you are globally located, into 2011. Yes, that's right folks, OK Chick has international readers! Anyway, I hope things have been ok for you these first 4-5 days. I've had a pretty good start. I've been to aerobics at least 5 times, vast improvement from the months of November and December. I've also cut back on the Starbucks addiction. Currently, only half of the staff knows me by name/drink. Again, vast improvement.
What are your goals for this year? I would ask what are your resolutions, but I don't like that question. It just seems like you are asking for failure when you make resolutions. It's been reported (by reliable sources I'm sure) that people do not keep their resolutions. They tend to break them the first month. Failure. I'm more of a goal setter. If you know me, it's very clear to see I'm a goal setter. This year I've set some goals, but then again I set goals every year. Actually, I set them monthly. Come to think of it, I set them daily. Do not scream or kick someone today. See, that's a goal.
This year, I plan to be a better person. Yes, I realize this is a very broad goal. And as a professional goal setter, I know you are suppose to be very specific on your goals. Therefore, these are some of the ways I will be a better person....
1. I will not gripe about watching Pepper for Sister #1. It's true sometimes I gripe. I know shocker!
2. Write at least 3 thank you notes, for something other than Christmas and birthday presents.
3. Each day I will ask someone how they are doing. But here's the kicker, I will actually take the time to listen to their answer. I will admit, sometimes I ask the question in passing, which means I keep walking after I ask the question. It's a horrible habit.
4. I will cook for Sister #2 and her roommate more often. I already do this often, but I can do it more. I'm a working individual, they are poor college students. It only makes sense.
Right now, this is all I have. These are small changes, but I think they will make a difference. Again, what are your goals? As always, it's fun if you actually answer my question and not just read the post.
