The week has really picked up from it's dull start and has almost tipped the other way with one idea leading to another until it is almost impossible to know where to start. So of course I reset myself back to my factory setting of inertia. Then I read this brilliant article on Martha Beck's site about new year resolutions. Her advice (via Ainslie MacLeod) is just to KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid).
It was a timely reminder to me that the big ideas have many, many different tiny steps to made them possible. So by making a daily to do list of simple and achievable goals for each day, little by little I can make progress to the big goals. It's pretty obvious really and I'm not sure why I need reminding of it every. single. year. but apparently I do. I guess I'm having trouble accepting that there is a lot of time, preparation and work that goes in to the achievement of big goals and staring out the window with a mild feeling of panic is really not going to cut it.
Anyhow, here is the link to Martha's article. She has even set up the Tiny Resolutions Club on facebook - and do watch her video at the end of the article. Inspirational, I tell ya, inspirational!
