Setting Goals and Plans not Resolutions for 2017

It is the last day of 2016 in Melbourne, Australia and it is a time when we read top 10 lists on 2016 and start looking to the future and making resolutions. However, in the past I find resolutions to be fleeting and I usually forget about  them by week 2 or 3 of the new year.

The last few years I have sat down and worked out goals and then a separate mini-plan for each goal. This way I can look back at each goal and it’s plan to see how I am going and whether I was too ambitious or too easy on myself. Over the last 5 years I have usually put a little too much pressure to get the goals completed. 2016 was a challenging year with moving the family back to Australia and taking on more responsibility at my day job along with continuing to publish on World Landscape Architecture on an almost daily basis.

I am looking to the future with positivity and have set goals for 2017 that I think I can achieve whilst balancing the all aspects of life.

I wish you a happy and prosperous 2017.
