I was reading email the other day, and my friend, Kim Bushore-Maki at Shakti in the Mountains had sent a New Years' letter about having a theme for 2013, instead of individual resolutions. I immediately loved the idea. Each year, I get so excited about the clean slate, and I set several resolutions, in all areas of life. But then, I look back on them, and they either became irrelevant within a few months, or I simply didn't stick to them.
So, instead of specific resolutions, I have a new theme for the year: ORDER. If you've ever seen my office, you know what a challenge this is to me. I've always been "the artistic, creative type"...or at least that was my excuse. My office (despite all my attempts) is a wreck! I try really hard to keep things in order, but there's just so much stuff, and so much to do! I get started cleaning up, straightening up, organizing, but eventually, I get tired and overwhelmed and I give up.
But this year, I MUST make it happen. The financials at the studio are getting complicated, and I'm so afraid they'll get out of control. And I know I work better and feel better when things are in order.
This is a whole new way of life for me, so if you have any suggestions or encouragement, please share!
