I haven't got much further with my resolutions since I wrote about them on Tuesday. I feel very childlike at the moment - like the world is full of opportunities and I'm reluctant to close the door on any of them. I'm savouring the feeling!
However, I do think my resolutions for my next stage in life will fall into 4 distinct categories or goals:
Find my passion
I often think that I'm a Jill of all trades and master of none. I'm far too interested in lots of things and I'm envious of anyone who really shines at one thing or is like NAH, who can focus single mindedly on one thing in great detail year after year. I suppose that's why he's an engineer and I'm not. So this goal is to find something that really floats my boat.
Make a personal difference
I've spent most of my working life in large organisations getting lost in the big picture. It's hard to put my hand on my heart and say I've made a real difference in anything that I've done, even though it seemed extremely important at the time. Now's my opportunity to do so.
Increase my potential lifespan
Lots of my NYRs usually fall into this category. It's time to give my health a real overhaul.
Reduce my carbon footprint
I try to think green and even have some university qualifications that say I do. However, I was shocked to find my rating in this quiz is just 68%. It's time to do something about it.
I realise these categories are a bit woolly and it'll be hard to say when I've achieved them. That's the next stage of the process when I'll be setting more detailed objectives for each category.
