December, by tradition, has always been a month to give to others. We share our resources of time, food, gifts, and money with our family, our friends, and those less fortunate. Often we leave ourselves out of the giving. To give ourselves a gift is not selfish, it is wise.
This December I ask that you give yourself the gift of time. Time to reflect on the past year.
- the things you did right,
- the things you could have done better,
- if you met your goals,
- if you didn't meet your goals then why not,
- and all the events of your life from the past year.
Time to think about the coming year:
- What goals did you set for yourself last year but didn't accomplish? Do you want to set them again for the new coming year?
- What do you want to accomplish in the next year?
- In what ways can you grow in knowledge and health?
- Did you use the SMART plan to establish those goals? (See my blog article dated: January 1, 2016)
There is nothing wrong with allowing yourself a little time to reflect, evaluate, and make new goals and plans. This is the perfect time of the year to do so. Spending December in reflection allows you to put your plans in action by the first of the new year. Not as resolutions, but as plans
