I’ve spent the last couple of weeks looking at my goals, dreams and projects for 2012. Okay, when I say the last couple of weeks that has been on and off. I’ve also been listening to some great music, making some (great?) music and doing my fair share of writing too. And that really is summing up where I want to head in 2012 – with a little bit of digital art thrown in for good measure. Of course I’m talking primarily about hobbies here. The day job is more challenging than ever, and the goals there will stretch me too.
I spent the last weekend with a pile of sticky notes and covered the desk with these. The picture above was when I had finished just one pack, I ended up using several. The aim was to capture all the things I wanted and had to do. Since then I’ve been trying to align everything, using the classic GTD approach. To end up with the following:
- Next actions
- Roles (or areas of responsibility)
- short-term goals (1-2 years)
- long-term goals (3-5 years
- life long vision, mission type thing
I haven’t completed it yet, but I am getting there. But one thing I do know is that 2012 will be a highly creative and transformational year for me. I hope it’s good for you too.
