I have a New Year.
And a New Word.
(Well...I didn't actually have a word before...)
My word for the year is PLAN.
Most people seem to have more feeling words like
I'd like those.
But I know me.
I better get a plan.
I have nice ideas.
But crummy follow through.
I could be on the "olympic sitting there team."*
This year, I don't want to end up in the kitchen with a hungry family and no idea what to have for dinner.
This year, I don't want to have run my self so ragged that I am bitter by the time my guests arrive.
This year, I want to get a grip on my technology that is supposed to make my life easier...but really is just frustrating me.
This year, I want to be that person who writes thank you notes again.
This year, I want to create exciting learning environments for the kids.
SO - I need to plan.
Because I know me.
I like to think and dream but the doing...
not so much.
I need a plan.
And I need to make things simple and realistic.
Plan. Plan. Plan.
I got a notebook to keep ideas & lists in.
I started writing in it this morning.
I was on a role.
By noon I had lost the book in my house.
I know it is close by.
In the morning, I plan on finding that notebook.
Do you have a word?
