Time…like taxes and death it’s inevitable and it will pass. We can’t stop it, nor can we slow it down. For me, 2014 passed in an instant. I thought about time a great deal over the holidays. Each of us has twenty-four hours in a day, seven days a week and three hundred and sixty five days in a year. How we manage our time determines what we’re able to accomplish.
During my unplugged period, I discovered the more time I had, the more time I wasted. I’m a creature of routine. I need my routine and I’ll be honest, when it’s disrupted, I’m not the most pleasant person to be around. My problem, I’m unable to stay focused without my routine. As Derek often says, “Slow down, you’re too hyper.”
I gave up making New Year’s resolutions years ago. Instead, I chose one word that will make a positive change in my life. This year, my one word will be focus. I plan to fight off the daily distractions that try to steal my focus. I will be dedicated and committed to make progress in an area that matters to me, my writing.
I hope each of you and your family have a year filled with peace, joy and accomplishing your dreams.
Do you have one word for 2015?
