I used to do the X before X to try to motivate me to accomplish some personal goals each year for my Birthday. You can see my failure here, Meaning...I don't do well with things like this.
I see the value, don't get me wrong, but I am just not a list driven person is what I've decided. How I manage projects for a living is beyond me.
However, in an attempt to live in the moment. Embrace the experience, and not get caught up in the "how I think it should be" whirlwind. I've made ONE. SINGLE. RESOLUTION!
I will not be Christmas shopping on December 24th unless I am assisting a family member in finishing their shopping.Every. single. year. I am shopping on the 24th. Sometimes it is worse than others. Last year was... well... an exception to every year so that doesn't count. But I am horrible and being prepared; and satisfied with my Christmas gift and always look back and wish I'd spent more time with my family vs shopping for them.
So this is my ONLY resolution. I think I mean this is a big deal I can pull this off, but I figured putting it out here was one more level of accountability.
Does anyone have any foul proof methodologies for getting it all done in time? Any great gift ideas people want to share already??
