I’m currently nursing a nasty congestion. Maybe it’s the awful Texas weather, one day it’s in the 40’s, the next it’s in the 70’s, yes all in December. Or the lack of activity, I’ve been off since Wednesday & my lungs are not getting enough aeration. I do feel somewhat productive though, I finished two books & wrote down my goals for the coming year (what most people know as “resolutions”). Sorry, this is not a blog on decorating for the New Year & pictures are going to be very few.
As far as the books, I finished a book about running a PT private practice (Keys to Private Practice Success) & “Know Your Own Mind” by James Greene & David Lewis. The latter is a must-read for all introspective people out there (please tell me I’m not the only one). It’s essentially a workbook & has enlightened me so much.I’ve read a lot of books this year & so far I liked this one a lot, as well as “The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur” by Mike Michalowicz.
As far as my goals, I’ve included the usual. Keeping a healthy weight, exercising at least 200 minutes a week (not a fitness buff but this is attainable & enough), eating less sugar & complex carbs. Of course, I have my career & financial goals, relationship goals & even personality goals (it’s not too late to change or better my core personality). I’ve even gone so far as planning to put myself in a monthly allowance. We’ll finish furnishing & decorating our Austin pad & watching how much we spend. Even though we love this media center from Crate & Barrel (ringing in at $1699),
We’ll settle for this one from West Elm (ringing in at $399) without sacrificing the style & feel we want to achieve. The other goals are pretty personal so I’ll stop here.
I am often delighted to know how a lot of my friends & acquaintances read my blog (I even have followers!) & I am very grateful. Please check out my other blogs at Smarter which I contribute to twice a month and if you haven’t yet, subscribe to my Monthly newsletter & my blog (found at the top of my blog page).
I wish all of you an amazing 2009!
