Lots of people have done their sum ups of 2015 or lengthy posts evaluating the last year.
For me, New Year’s Eve is always about celebrating the fact that we made it through the year. Good and bad, closing the books on it. Not dwelling on what I want to do differently or setting a list of challenges for the upcoming year- December 31st is a celebration of an upcoming clean slate.
Tomorrow is when I’ll start making my plan for the year. I usually begin by trying to spend New Year’s Day doing things I think are important and want to continue a tradition of, but I’ll also start looking at goals for the year and how to achieve them. So much of my job requires setting goals, measuring, re-evaluating, and project planning that that’s not how I want to spend the turn of the year.
Tonight, I’ll just celebrate and be grateful that I squeaked another one past the fates and work pretty hard at not thinking critically until sometime tomorrow.
