Who writes goals a month before the New Year?
Apparently a lot of people.
But I get it – it’s a satisfying feeling to start off a new year knowing you’ve accomplished exactly as you wanted the past month rather than hoping you’d accomplish alllll these things for the next year.
(We all know how well those New Year’s Resolutions stick.)
So here it is, my December goals:
- Finish Yellow by Frank Wu.
- Finish Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.
- Do a 6 mile run once a week.
- Picture book.
I used to be a big fan of the under-promise, overachieve outlook, but then I realized that by holding myself to lower standards, it was making me under-perform.
Let’s get out of the rut for 2016, but until then, I have December to think about.
