New Year Resolutions

The New Year for many of us brings the opportunity to reset goals and start fresh.  Resolutions are worth nothing if we don’t take the necessary actions and what I have learned this past year is that being able to keep a record of actions also keeps me moving forward.

My goal in 2014 was to ‘finish’——sewing projects, craft projects and of course beading projects.  I’ve kept a little notebook and listed the projects as I finished them.  This tool has kept me focused but also successful……I recorded 148 projects finished this year.  It is the first time I have ever followed through with one of my New Year resolutions.  So for 2015, I am going to focus on a one word goal and then keep track of my actions. Think I’ll start at the back of my little book to keep that record!

What success did you have this year with your resolutions?  And, what are your goals for 2015?

An update on finishing!

In my January blog, I wrote about my one and only New Year’s resolution: finishing projects of all kinds.  I have been diligent over the past six months in keeping this focus…with of course lots of other things going on in my life.  As of yesterday, I have completed 77, yes, 77 projects—sewing projects, beaded projects, items needing repair, gifts and samples for the Bead Bush. (Note: I keep track in a little notebook)  Some of these projects I started years ago, and some two weeks ago…but finish them I have…

So you’d think my sewing room, and my work area in the Bead Bush would be clean, neat,  really quite empty…wrong!  I admit, the pile has lessened and I am a little more organized, but I have a long ways to go.  It probably won’t ever happen, but it is better.

One of the things I think about is why I don’t finish…….lot’s of reasons…run out of time, isn’t working out right, stuck on what to do next, poor color choices, doesn’t fit, poor choice of material and technique, grow disinterested and just plain boring.  I’m gradually pushing myself to dispose (could mean throw away, give away, take apart, or put in box with other experimentations) of those things that hang around, that will never be finished or used…..whether they be beaded items or sewing items. Hard to do, but getting easier.

I find I like things a little more organized, labeled, and less messy… wow….that is amazing.  Now I have just have to keep it up.   That will be the challenge!

What have you done this year, that inspires you to finish what you have started?
