What's Next?

So, another year draws to a close.

I'm determined to make 2010 my biggest year yet. Up until now I've either drifted through my years, from time to time getting caught on some reeds or the riverbank; college, uni, a job I need to pay the rent... but I don't know why I'm where I am, how I got here, or where I'll end up.

Well, from the beginning of 2010 onwards I am going to use my own goals as my compass, and decide for myself where it is I'm heading. No more doing things just because I don't want to disappoint the people around me, or because I don't have anything better to do than go along with what I'm told is best.

I'm prepared to make mistakes here and there, and have to adjust my course, and surprise a few people along the way. After all, I know that all the important people in my life will support me in whatever I decide I want to do.

Today I've been planning. I'm surrounded by hundreds of big and little ideas of what I want to do, and excited by the fact that so many of them seem achievable. I now need to prioritise them so that I can focus on one at a time and start ticking things off my list of accomplishments without becoming overwhelmed.

I'm looking forward to this next year.
How about you?

Didn't you post something quite similar around this time last year? And at several points inbetween?
I foresee another year of you posting about all the amazing things you're about to do.
Get on with it before you end up like me!

Hehe, I know. Broken record syndrome. But this time I have plans where before I had vague ideas. And I have no student loan to make it all okay, so I *have* to do something. And lots more reasons why I can't just ignore it this time.

But please nag at regular intervals to make sure I'm keeping up with it!!
