Failure

TakingControlIs 2013 the year that you take control?

I look back at 2012 and am happy with several projects, goals and accomplishments.

I also look back and see failures. I know that I learn from failure, but that doesn’t make the emotion any easier to swallow. Pride is a bitter pill – worse than swallowing unbuffered aspirin dry (no glass of water).

One of the failures I see is that I did not keep this blog updated like I wanted. From this failure, I can see that I prioritized helping people above keeping the blog updated. This is acceptable to me.

From this failure, I can also see that I allowed too many people access to my calendar which then made it messy for me to try to live. This is not acceptable to me. I am responsible for my calendar. I must do better at being available to those who are ready to do the hard work and limit my availability to those who merely talk pretty (aka those not ready to do the work).

I have plans in place for 2013. I am excited to get after my resolutions/goals/whatever-you-want-to-call-them. I will endure the discipline and process to get to the results that I want.

Are you ready?

(I hope so!)
