Things have to change. I love the process of setting goals however I think I set too many goals and quickly become overwhelmed with all the changes I need to make. And really I'm kinda lazy. I would much rather spend free time on my computer trolling Pinterest and Craigslist. I'm great at ideas and lousy at implementation. I even delay things like laundry and grocery shopping and general housework. I want to do things like take a sewing or cooking class but I hesitate for some reason. I'm kinda just watching life go by not actively living it.
There is a movement One Word 365 which advocates choosing one word to focus on for 2014. I really like this idea. Simple, to the point and easy to remember. I think my word for 2014 is DO. I just need to get going. I don't need to finish things. I'm not concerned with being "done" with something this year. I just want to make progress. I need to just get up and do something.

“Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.”
