Wow this year flew by and I wasted so much of it on entertainment. I see that now and hope to made a concerted effort to manage my time better in 2012.
One thing I did work on was making time for my daughters. One day I realized the year was half over and my kids were half a year closer to growing up and moving out. I didn't want them to look back and have their first memory of me be sitting at the computer shouting for peace and quiet. My littlest still enjoys taking bubble baths and being read stories so I made time to sit by her and just read. It was difficult, not because I don't enjoy her smiles and just being with her but because I multi-task so much that it is painful to sit and do just one thing.
I recently subscribed to a couple of podcasts that I hope provide some good motivation as well as learning experiences. 2012 needs to be a year of growth and production.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
