Today is December 31, 2013. It’s the last day of the year. I had a good year, got a lot of things done in 2013, and had a lot of successes.
I also dropped the ball a few times. I have two projects that I can think of that I truly intended to complete in 2013, which I did not complete. One of them, I started working on about a week ago. I was looking at it this morning and thought to myself
I really can get this done today. If I finish it today, I will have completed my goal of finishing this before the end of 2013. I’m gonna do it!
So, I worked on it for an hour or so this morning, and you know… I am well on my way to completing the project. Probably two more hours and it will be completed. It will certainly be done in 2013, I have already committed to that.
The other ball that I dropped is a bit more difficult and personal. It involves another person that I promised to help. He is a friend on Facebook, and he has some interesting business things that he is doing. I’ve been following his business project for a couple of years now, and I decided that I wanted to help promote what he is doing. I promised him that I was going to write an article about him online, and do a few other things. I have had very good intentions to do it, but I dropped the ball and let it hang. Makes me feel terrible. I am a very busy person, and don’t have time to do everything I want to do. But, I am not going to make excuses, because if I already made a commitment to somebody, then I always do it. This time, though, I dropped the ball.
I am going to fix that. Today. I will send him a message before the end of the day and get the ball rolling with him. Fact is, I also have a little proposal to make to him that would benefit both of us, I think. But, how could he trust me to get involved in a project together when I dropped the ball already? So, I have to get the commitment I made to him completed, and then build on that for a while before I approach him with my idea that we can do together. Maybe that will be one of my projects for 2014, to build trust with him and show him that I am not the person that he thinks I am after my dropping of the ball with him.
Finish Strong in 2013
So, today is December 31. Last day of the year. I have only two things that I feel I dropped the ball on in 2013. I’m going to fix it while 2013 still has a few more hours left. I think that is the smart thing to do, and the right thing. Gotta go now. I have work to do!
