My 2017 Recap

You should do a 2017 recap. It's best to reflect on your past year before you start making plans for next year.

This will remind you that you did do a lot in the past year. It's a form of encouragement. It will point out areas where you need to focus. It may point out what you can eliminate to make your life easier or inspire you to work harder in a focused way on what matters most.

You could carve a little time for this over the next few weeks to a month. It seems to work for me.

To make this easier next year, start a written list of the years highlights and keep this handy. I have a page in my planner book for this. Plus I make note of highlights right on my calendar in my planner book. I don't want to make this a big tracking ordeal every year spending too much time on it. I just like knowing what I did.

I find tracking my life far more entertaining than worrying about others lives. I get kind of sick of trying to help other people. The people with lives that need a lot of help are not very inspiring because of how they play the victim and make excuses.

Maybe the lesson is to stop making excuses for why you can't do something. Don't worry about other people, mind your own business, shut up, get busy and go for it.
