How about you and yours?

I sincerely hope you all had a lovely, safe, wonderful holiday season.

We stayed safe, traveled a bit, and had a lovely time. My regret is my lack of planning though, which always seems to be the case. I hope to better plan this year so that we can fully enjoy everything each holiday has to offer. This ties directly into today’s topic :DĀ 

Resolutions, plans, etc are always the theme this time of year and I feel the urge just like most folks. The only thing I really think I’m going to commit to though is a focus word for the year. Have you set yours yet?

“Fearless”

That’s what I hope to become this year. I want to go out and LIVE instead of looking at other people’s life behind a screen. I want to make plans and follow through and really squeeze every bit of life I can out of most days. I mean shoot, I seriously almost died last September, and October of 2012 (carbon monoxide leak in the house), I really don’t want to repeat the experience without some major living.

So let’s talk about something a little new here. Pressure.

With the holidays under our belts let’s look back a bit and see how we did.

Do you work well under pressure?

For me it depends on the pressure. Some pressure is great, other pressure induces major panic attacks. I tend to get the most done right before an event. It’s like all of a sudden a fire is lit underneath me and it’s time to get down to business. Deadlines make me happy. I’m trying to make that fire happen a little further out than two days before an event. I now know how to use a planner (thank you college!!!) and will hopefully be able to utilize it to get stuff done ahead of time this year.

So what about you? Do you have a word this year? Any goals you hope to accomplish? How well do you work under pressure? Let’s chat!Ā
