Checking the list

Well readers, we've come to the end of another year. Like most people, I'm wondering where exactly this one went. As a kid I remember time seemed to pass by so00000 slowly. One month felt like three, three months like six and whole year seemed to stretch into an eternity. Now time is flying by with such speed I have to look back at my planner (yes, I still use a paper planner) to remember what I was doing two months ago only to realize that what felt like two months was actually six.

For me time goes by quickly when I am busy, and this year has definitely kept me on my feet. Even with challenges in the market, we at Function: haven't just been sitting around playing solitaire. We have worked on getting new business, on bettering our own and of course, on making sure that our clients are achieving the best results possible. We've been exploring new tools and technologies, and how to use those to further our reach. I have to admit, much to my husband's chagrin, I have become quite proficient in Twitter. And after a day of work, I go home to chase a very active toddler around my house. It's exhausting I tell ya!

Now readers, I don't know about you, but I am not one for resolutions. Well, let me rephrase that - I make a list of both personal and professional objectives (in my sweet planner) for the coming year, which are more like action items than resolutions.
It's like my own 2011 strategy. I figure I make 2011 plans for my clients, why not myself, right? I even draw little check boxes next to each item (this is my method for my daily to-do lists as well. Check boxes make my world go round). And, checking those boxes once a task is completed feels so good.

So, as we quickly head into a new decade (I am in shock that I have been around for so many decades at this point), think about what some of your 2011 objectives are. What's your personal and professional strategy? How will you best achieve your goals? What are the outcomes that you are hoping for?

I know that Function: (and my rapidly growing toddler) will continue to keep me moving in 2011. I can't make a check box to slow time down, but I can make the most of each moment.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! Catch you on the flip side.
