Today 2013 has arrived; it’s the season of making resolutions and then, generally, breaking them shortly after. I stopped making them a long time ago. In fact, the last one I ever made was to stop smoking one New Years Eve. That was twenty years ago and I haven’t smoked since which proves they can be kept if the desire is strong enough.The fact that you can as easily break a resolution as make one seems to be the problem for me.
However, I do make plans and I have dreams and ideas so maybe it’s the same thing. What’s in a name?
This year will be a bit different in so far as my full-time job is being made redundant at the end of March and as I only have a couple of years to go before retirement I have some pretty important decisions to make.
- Look for another job – but in the present climate and considering my age it’s unlikely to happen.
- Become a full-time writer – I am not convinced I have the skills for this.
- Retire – No going to happen as I don’t feel ready for that yet.
- Work freelance as a training consultant – needs lots of marketing and networking.
At the moment I feel the best alternative for me is the last one so that’s where my energies will be focused over the next couple of months. But I have to write too so that means I’ll be juggling with time a bit, after all, I will still be working until March as well.
So all in all, the early part of 2013 looks to be a very busy year for me.
I hope you all get what you want from this year and those dreams and wishes you have come true
