What Will You Do in 2022?

Each year as the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, I think about the year ahead and what I hope to accomplish. I make a list of my professional goals and divide it into categories; Doable, Hopeful, Bucket List and do the same for my personal goals. I try to keep it as realistic as possible and refrain from putting the cliché items on the list. Why set yourself up for failure in the first month? I also do not make the list ridiculously long. Why put that much pressure on yourself? I’m all about motivation and excelling, but I also want to keep it in perspective.

The last 2 years have been challenging to say the least and as of now, 2022 is off to a rocky start. But I’m remaining positive and hoping we get through this quickly. This bump in the road had not deterred me from setting my goals, but I do know that I may be delayed in making them happen. But like I always say, and you can confirm with my friends, family and colleagues, “It is what it is.” I have learned that I have absolutely no control over anything except how I react to it. So, each day, I remember to breath and stay focused.

What do you hope to accomplish this year? I’d love to hear your thoughts. I’ve included a blank goals page to help get you started. Good luck!!

Happy New Year!!

  1. Dear Lisa:

    Happy New Year to you! Thanks for the inspiration—and your example of being both positive and productive!

    My wish and dream is to see my book writing goals realized, as I wish for all my other dear book writing friends!

    Again, Happy New Year, Lisa! And Happy New Year to all!

  2. Lisa — We are only 4 days in…so if you are off to a rocky start, that means things will get better. You will be fine! Can’t keep a super talent like you down for long.

    I still have too many things that I want to accomplish…however, recognizing the crowded space in my brain, I have elicited a kindred soul, my sorority sister and college chum who is much like me, to be an accountability partner. We have started a quick, weekly 20 min session called Sundays at Seven. We had our first one this past week, and it was great. Reported that I sorted two large bags of things belonging to my daughter for her to take, or leave for disposal in my discretion; sorted books (found some first print Harry Potter books), unsubscribed to some emails, took a box of stuff to Goodwill, bought stickies for my Kanban board. She finished writing a play, found a co-producer and planning to get it filmed. We are both tickled with ourselves.

    1. Thanks for the words of encouragement!! Sundays at Seven sounds great and it looks like you accomplished a lot. Looking forward to the next sprint!!
