It’s February. How you making out with your New Year’s resolutions? Did you know that approximately 80% of people have failed to keep their resolutions by now? I heard that a few years ago and since then I do not make them, well that and the fact that I could not think of one resolution that I had ever actually stuck to! With a zero percent success rate I decided to give up the game!

Yet I still have goals and plans for my life. I just make SMART goals now and I don’t have an all or nothing clause associated with them. Almost everything I do in life I think of as practise and I like to consider myself “a work in progress” . That way I get to get back on course if I steered off. And isn’t it easy to fall a stray for a bit? Today I was out cross country skiing. As I was heading down a hill, faster than I was comfortable with, and as I attempted to turn a corner I went off the “rails”! My goal was to make a perfect corner but I didn’t – “Work in Progress”!

In what areas of your life are you a “work in progress”?
