Still can't seem to get 2005 to fit right, even 10 weeks in. I worked hard, was quite focused, in the latter bit of 2004. Maybe that over the top sleep in on boxing day is to blame.
Anyhow, am now starting to get a lot of the strands of my life into some sort of comfortable routine.
I have spent this evening doing a lot of scheduling work and I feel like I have put many of my orphan to do items into appropriate time and date boxes.
I guess I have been struggling with my desire to incorporate a whole lot of new things into my schedule. I have been exercising a lot more, I have been attending toastmasters meetings, I have been attending City Council.
The major thing, career wise, is a transition in my thinking from mostly small scale and local to bigger scale desires to take my work globally. That is not such a stretch in the world of the Internet. But, as happens with many, more and more frequently, the reach the Internet provides forces me to stretch my thinking. And, frankly, to go beyond my comfort level. Old local thinking habits die hard.
I am in the beginning of a campaign to create a relationship with every english language paper on the planet (over time). I am hoping many will find my newspaper column of value to them and will part with a small amount of money to have it available to them.
I can feel my new year finally truly beginning.
