Wow, it’s been a while since I published anything here. (This is becoming my default opening line for blog posts.)
I should probably do a 2015 recap post at some point. It was a big year for me with a lot of ups and downs, and lots of lessons learned (hopefully). Honestly, I can’t believe how fast the year seemed to fly by. I accomplished a few of my goals for the year, but slipped up on more.
Anyway, now the calendar says 2016, and I’m sure a lot of you will be thinking about your goals for the new year.
If you’re into making New Years Resolutions, you might want to check out the post I wrote back on January 1st, 2013 about how to make resolutions that stick.
I’m making a few resolutions this year. One of which is to actually stick to a writing and publishing schedule on this blog. I used to have a pretty solid writing habit, but I’ve been really inconsistent lately. It’s kind of funny because I talk so much about writing and habits, you’d think I would have actually figured that one out. My first experiment of the year is going to be to write every day (again). This will be Round 3 of that experiment.
I’ve got a few other key habits I want to rebuild, but of course I’m going to be taking them one at a time. I’ll announce some more of my goals for the year soon, and also catch up a bit with writing about the experiments I did last year.
Monthly Experiments Podcast
In the meantime, if you want to hear the origin story of how and why I started doing Monthly Experiments, I was interviewed for a really cool podcast a few months back. It was a fun experience, and I shared some things that I haven’t talked much about here on the blog before.
If you want to give it a listen, check out my episode of Challenge Your Thinking with Dr. Linda Tucker.
Ok, I’m going to wrap up there for now.
A few questions…
Are you making any New Years Resolutions? Are you taking on a personal experiment for January?
Let me know in the comments, and/or hop over to the Monthly Experiments Facebook community and say hi there.
Happy New Year!
