No resolutions this year, just a plan of action: decide what's important in my personal and professional lives and begin to adjust my schedule accordingly.
Retirement is six months away. I don't want to be a juggler, multi-tasking is not my goal. There must be time for family, friends, hobbies, exercise, and work in my daily life. My house and my mind need to be decluttered.
Author Melinda M. Marshall has said that
“True balance requires assigning realistic performance expectations to each of our roles. True balance requires us to acknowledge that our performance in some areas is more important than in others. True balance demands that we determine what accomplishments give us honest satisfaction as well as what failures cause us intolerable grief.”
"Realistic performance expectations" are just what I'm after, in everything from housekeeping to blogging to online facilitating.
"Honest satisfaction" is what I hope to feel at the end of this transitional year.
