IWSG: January 2019

It’s a New Year and I'm sure you’ve heard it a hundred times. “New Year, New Me!”

Pretty sure this is going to be another “New Year, Same Me” situation. And I’m okay with that. Do I hope to get more done this year than last? Yes. I always hope to improve, but I also am just happy to do as well as I did last go around. Because sometimes, that’s all you can really ask of yourself. Sometimes you can’t even ask that, and I’m willing to admit that I’ve had those years recently. And that’s okay.

I don’t make resolutions. They aren’t beneficial to me, personally, and I don’t have time to do things that fall into that category. For those of you who do find them beneficial, that’s awesome. Kudos. I wish I could say the same. Truly, I do.

I try to make bite-size goals on a monthly basis. Usually no more than three “big” things.

What about you? Do resolutions work for you? Do they fizzle out by March? How do you feel about goals in general?


  1. Happy New Year!

    I don't make resolutions either. Tried it once some years ago and it was a waste of my time because I experienced frustration trying to stick with a plan that limited me and put me in a box that I didn't want to be in.
    I do have a plan though but not based on New Year's resolutions. Let's just say it is a ten year plan with a time schedule that is flexible.
    Wishing you all the best for 2019.
    Shalom aleichem,
