For the last few years I have posted – near the end of December or sometimes early January – about the importance of setting GOALS for the upcoming year – you can check those out here, here or here – and the strategies I employ to ensure I don’t waste the next 8784 hours.
New Year’s Resolutions
Goals for 2015 – What Am I Thinking?
I am sitting here working on my goals for next year, something I neglected to do last year and as a result I drifted.
Going into 2014 I was filled with hope for getting back into comedy. I was excited by the prospect of getting back on a stage and the rush that accompanies the sound of laughter that I caused – inadvertently or not.
I missed that feeling – a lot, and had every intention of pursuing that feeling and everything that goes with it but I got sidetracked at the beginning of the year and it took me until almost August to see how far off track I had gotten.
Something that would not have happened had I had a plan – but not simply a plan but a written plan. A road map for where I wanted 2014 to take me or better, where I wanted to TAKE 2014.
Goals Are Not Resolutions – But they’re Similar
Everyone knows that the start of a new year brings joy, hope, Ryan Seacrest doing his best Dick Clark impersonation and of course resolutions.
I think it is safe to say there are two solid camps when it comes to how people feel about them. Some love ’em some hate ’em.
