Happy New Year!

This is the time of year when many of us are looking ahead and planning our goals for the next 12 months.  It is an exciting time, almost like having a clean slate. 

Something of which I have been made aware recently is that I enjoy this time because I have the natural inclination of being in the present and looking forward.  This is great, because this means that I am always enjoying the moment and looking for the next challenge.  However, there is a down side – sometimes I don’t give myself time to look back and congratulate myself, or even fully appreciate what I have done and how far I have come.  

On the other hand, I know people who focus on the past and what they have done and don’t always look at how they can use their past experience and knowledge as a springboard to move on to bigger or different things.  

The key, as in all things, is to get balance.  Congratulate yourself on everything you have achieved, learnt and enjoyed in the past 12 months.  What did you most like doing?  What do you never want to do again? What did you think you would never do in a thousand years, but which turned out to be fabulous?  How have you developed?  Once you have reviewed the past and taken stock, use this as your foundation from which to build your 2011 dreams and goals.  

Whatever your dreams and goals are, very best wishes to you for a happy, healthy 2011.
