Every year as my birthday approaches I begin to think about the year that is passing and what I would like to change for the next year.
My main resolution at this point is to try (again) to focus more on what I can do on a daily basis than to fret about what I can't. Since that line moves on me almost every day (and sometimes during the course of a day) this probably means not making firm plans based on a timeline. Instead I plan to keep a fluid list of soft-focused goals, and work toward the goals without trying to hit any specific mark.
- I will try to write something on a review every day, rather than attempt to submit X number of reviews per week.
- Instead of having ebay sales every week, I will use my turbolister program to get individual auctions ready one at a time, and whenever I think there are enough to list on a weekend, up they go. (Ebay has sucked recently anyway, my Weldon's collection is bringing only a small fraction of what the books go for elsewhere... a book listed on Amazon for $125 went for $19.)
- I will work a bit on my ongoing patterns as ideas come to me, and publish them when they are ready rather then try and get X number of patterns published by Y date. If I can't focus enough to knit a specific pattern, I can always wing a hat or sweater for charity. If it needn't fit any specific person, it is pretty mindless knitting.
