    As 2014 is nearing its end we can reflect on the many things that we wanted to accomplish but didn’t. However, let’s turn it around and look at one thing we actually were able to do. If we end this year on a positive note—we should be able to contemplate even BIGGER accomplishments for 2015!

      I used to let people upset me over the least little things. However, this year I have finally come to the realization that EVERYONE is entitled to their own opinion and it doesn't always have to coincide with mine :-)

        I am totally with you on that one. That is definitely NOT on my 2015 list!

      My goal for 2014 was to get my book on Medieval Games finished and published, but that hasn't worked out, I did however get a different shorter version done and ready for publishing about Ancient Board Games, and is currently being reviewed by beta readers to make sure its good to go, so it should be out by the end of 2014 if not early in 2015 at the latest. The Medieval Games book is MUCH MUCH bigger and still has a ways to go before it's ready, but I think I should get it done in 2015.

    I realized my goal of working from home full time with benefits. This was at the top of my list so it feels really good to have accomplished this one.

      That is really Great! That was a goal of mine also. I had the opportunity to do just that with an offer two days ago ... but turned it down. Didn't like the idea of overtime!

    "If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same"(If-Kipling)...The pressures of 21st.century living especially on Females by the Media,the perfect weight,figure,clothes,hair,smile,must haves, the list is endless.The stress of every day living,keeping a career/job/family whilst maintaining this promoted image,why can't we be as our Grandparents,break the mould and be ourselves....do what we want(within reason)and just let "things happen"without remorse.

      Actually, we can if we refuse to be dictated to. It takes a strong individual with tremendous will power to say NO to the ads that promote younger, sexier people and make older, average being seem inferior. Our grandparents were not dictated to because there was no wide-spread information telling them what they did wasn't "right." When I set standards for myself; it is based on how I will feel and not the masses. Because, I can escape others but I can't escape myself.

    I decided New Year resolutions, goals etc were a total waste of time because life is to be enjoyed not stressed over. As a result I've had a fantastic year with no stress, excellent earnings and a lot of fun. I fully intend to ignore resolutions and goal-setting for the rest of my life.

      “The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score.” – Bill Copeland

      “You need a plan to build a house. To build a life, it is even more important to have a plan or goal.” – Zig Ziglar

        I own my house and have so little left on the mortgage that it is not worth trying to pay it off in advance.
        I work for myself through my own company doing work that feels more like play than like work. I work when I feel like it and take holidays when I want holidays.
        I earn enough to have no financial worries and to be able to do most things I want to do. Admittedly, since I am not interested in fashion, gadgets and nights out in boring night clubs, I tend to spend less than many other people, but purely through my own preferences.

        So, Mr Copeland, whoever you are, I am not running up and down a field but consider that I have scored a winning goal.
        And Mr Ziglar, whoever you are, I have built my life as I want it without the aid of your maundering moralising.

        Down with life-coach gurus and their tedious (de)motivational witterings!

          You should like a really "happy camper" that has acquired what many people including Maslow would call "Self Actualization." That is reaching a very satisfactory point in life. However, sometimes goals are a subconscious effort without actually writing it down with pen and paper. You had a desire to live a comfortable life and you are. Sounds like a subconscious goal to me!

    I trained and ran my first 5k which isn't probably a big deal to many, but at 40 I finally decided to do it instead of just talk about it smile

    I grew my freelancing business somewhat, but also started focusing more on my art and other projects and it did a lot to elevate my spirits.

      Hey a 5k IS a big deal.... I did my first a couple of years ago after my daughter did her first one and was training for her first 10k (she was 10 at the time)

        I thought about trying a 10k, then I realized how hard it was to get to where I could do a 5k without stopping and thought nope, I've had enough of that lol.  Now I'm getting back into some yoga again - challenging, but much easier on the joints smile Congrats to you both on your running goals.
