What happens to all those good intentions made as New Year Resolutions? So often, plans to shed some weight, rid the clutter, walk the dog more, clean out closets, etc simply dissipate as the New Year no longer feels so new anymore. Before we know it we’re back in the same rut we thought would soon be history.
Well, at Dog Bark Park, Dennis & I have declared 2010 to be the year our good intentions happen. Wisdom says we most likely won’t complete every goal. To-do lists are always longer than time or energy available. This year we plan to not fret about that fact.
Instead, we’re selecting the most pressing, or most appealing projects, and starting on them right away. We no longer will wait for that big chunk of time to throw ourselves into the task to get it done in one burst of activity. Even if only 5 or 10 minutes at a time is all we have to clear a decade of clutter in the office we’re proceeding. Slow but steady attention will get the job done! And how good does that feel?!
Here’s our progress so far:
1. Last week we cleaned, repainted, & re-arranged one section of our studio giftshop at a time working a couple hours each day.
Stay tuned for more progress reports. And send us your tips and experiences for making your resolutions reality!
