The Holiday Season is Here!

For many of us the holiday season means a break from work and a focus on the family. Its a time for spending a little more time resting, maybe eating a little much, getting a few presents and generally having some fun family time.

It can also be a good time to take a few minutes and reflect back on the year ... was the year everything you would have hoped? What might you have done differently? What achievements can you point to with pride? What "hiccups" did you have?

It is a time when you are away from you daily work and can perhaps look at your world a little more critically and see how your life plan is working out. I have written several blogs about setting goals and thought I would "put them out there" again for those who might want to get some ideas.

Back in July 2006 I wrote about Goals ... the way to take charge of your life. Just about a year ago I wrote about the year end wrap up and new year planning process, which is just a relevant today. In May this year I nagged people again about the power of goals and pointed out that it can start any time, so "just do it".
Finally in June this year I did my last nagging on the subject of goals.

None of us is perfect at this stuff, so its very like the analogy of being chased by a grizzly bear ... you don't have to be faster than the bear, you just need to be faster than one of your friends running next to you! If setting goals makes you a little better than the next person it can be the difference between getting a job or not, being promoted or not; getting the deal or not etc.

Have a super holidays and treat yourself with a few minutes planning your life!
