I know a lot of people are writing about their years and their plans right now, but I want to reflect on the difference between crashing into 2017 and peacefully stepping into 2018.
Last year, I wasn’t prepared for the type of growth I would have in my business and all of the little things I didn’t know how to do at the time. It’s good that I’m a quick learner, because the transition could have been disastrous.
Don’t get me wrong, I barely held on and still sport some road rash from it, but ambition has a way of whittling down the fluff of dreams—something I desperately need with my wild imagination and grandiose ideas.
This year, however, I got a relatively easy transition, watching Futurama with my husband and a little bubbly. My projects were complete, planned, and simply waiting for a few finishing touches. I didn’t have to scramble.
Boy, was that nice.
I must admit that this has inflated my inner dreamer, and she’s bursting with far too many new ideas—new circles—that will need closed or popped.
So, in echo of last year, when I wrote about how I think and plan and process, I’d like to give you a glimpse of my next year, literally.
Let me know what your plans are for 2018, how this year compares to last, and what system you use to keep on track!
