Okay, I guess I'd better write something before BlogHer decides I don't post enough and pulls their advertising.
I have been laaaaazy, and loving it. In fact, I'm loving it so much that I am going to remain lazy a little longer and I'm not going to give you my Christmas/New Year's recap until later this week.
I am, however, going to give you a Spin Cycle assignment for this week. Hopefully, somebody or other can write something up by Friday. And by somebody or other, I mean...me.
This week on The Spin Cycle...
5 Missions for 2013
"Hmmm," you say, "what does that mean, Gretchen?"
I will explain.
I HATE New Year's Resolutions. I really do. When I make a resolution, I feel like I'm just setting myself up for failure. Because I am NEVER able to keep them. I have excellent intentions, and make a good start, but within a very short period of time, I inevitably...fail. It's all a big, sad circle of pain and self-doubt.
So...no resolutions. But I would like to set a few...goals. No, I don't like that word either. Hmmm...thesaurus...ambitions? No, that sounds too distant. Objectives? No, that sounds like an acting exercise. I need a word which conjures up something bigger, more dramatic. How about...missions. Yeah, I like that. An "operational task", something to plan for and embark upon. It may even require a tight black jumpsuit like Emma Peel. Or not. A mission to clean out the garage sounds MUCH cooler than a resolution to clean out the garage, doesn't it?
This week, I'd like us to think of 5 (which seems like a doable number) Missions for 2013. 5 things you want to get done, for which we can make a plan and get it done.
Write it. Post it. Let me know. I'll link it here.
Oh, and by the way...I think an excellent mission for 2013 would be to participate in The Spin Cycle on a regular basis! Just saying.
