12 Months of Getting it Done

Every year I try to think of a New Year's Resolution that I would be happy with.  

Every year I end up with a long list of things that I want to accomplish in that year.  

After much contemplation I narrow it down to only one goal.  By the end of the year, my one resolution is still not done and my original list is still just as long as it was before.  I am a procrastinator and start multiple projects and never finish them, especially when they are things that I want to get done, but don't interest me.  I think I finally have a plan on how to accomplish the many things that I want to without getting overwhelmed.

I have decided that this year I will do a different thing each month.  Each month I will write about what I plan on accomplishing that month and document my progress and plans throughout the month.  

I am hoping my readers will share their plans as well.  

Do you think you can get one thing done a month for a year?  Who's in with me? 


  1. I like this idea a lot Leah. I also have the problem starting to many projects and rarely finishing any of them. I have however set smaller goals for myself over the last two months and have found myself completing them. Maybe its best to either have a few small goals or one big one per month. So yes, I am with you on this and will report back accordingly :)

  2. Great idea Leah! I am planning on having a big goal for the year and breaking it into twelve smaller steps I can work on each month so it's manageable!

  3. Tiffany, I am glad you are in this with me! I find that when doing things at the same time as other people, it is easier to stay on track.
    Melissa, I guess I really do have one main goal which is getting organized. I think it is just easier for me to see it as a whole bunch of smaller, more easily achievable goals.
    Thanks for your responses.


I look forward to your comments, they make my day!
