Plans/values

  Yesterday I took some time to check in and revisit my plans and values for the coming year.  I find this helps me keep my focus on what is meaningful.
Many moons ago I had the privilege to attend a Franklin/Covey seminar.  This program made a huge impression on me.  For years I have continued to use these tools to keep me centered on what is vital.
 
The objective of this workshop was to help you decide what you value the most.  How to manage your time.  How to achieve the goals that were important to you.
 
 
I find that when I plan well I generally will accomplish what matters.
  
 As I look back on the previous year I made creating a blog a top priority.   This was a major achievement for someone who was anything but computer savy.  
 
There are some things though that one can't plan.   What I couldn't have foreseen was how important each one of you would become to me.
  
Thank you dear friends for your visits, encouraging comments and personal e-mails.   May God bless you for embracing my heart and warming me with your generous gift of time. 
I am looking forward to another wonderful year of visiting each one of you.
 
Happy New Year!

  13. Debbie, I understand your thoughts. When I began blogging I'm not for sure what I expected. I do know I did not anticipate feeling such a closeness to those I know only through this thing called blogging. Happy New Year! Bonnie

  17. Sounds like you've made some important discoveries about yourself at that workshop and during your reflections recently. I'm really happy for you, and I hope you start off the year feeling good about your accomplishments from the past year and looking forward with optimism to the new year! Planning is good, and I am an expert at overplanning... but we have to remember to leave a window open for those unexpected opportunities or those little ideas that come whispering in and change the plan to a new direction....
