If you are like me, it’s hard to believe that December is here. It seems like just a few weeks ago that we were celebrating New Year’s and looking ahead to what 2012 had in store for us. But now that there’s only one month left in the year, it’s time to evaluate our year and look ahead to the next one.
Were you able to accomplish all that you wanted to this year? How did you do on your financial goals? If you totally missed the mark or fell short on any of them, no worries, you still have one month left to do them and you can accomplish a lot of things in just a month.
December is also a good time to think ahead to 2013. Have you sat down yet and written the things you want to accomplish? I’ve published the worksheet that my wife and I have used to help us stay focused on our goals. It is always nice to have our goals down on paper so we can see them in front of us. You might not reach everyone of them, but that’s OK. It’s better to aim high and miss than to not aim at all.
If you are behind on your goals, don’t panic. You can still accomplish a lot in December if you make it a priority. Reaching a goal in December is just as good as reaching it in any other month. 2012 is almost over but you still have time to make it count!
Have you been able to accomplish all your goals for 2012? What is on tap for you in 2013? I’m looking for people to share what they’ve accomplished this year and what they are looking ahead to next year for an upcoming podcast. Please share in the comments below or use the contact form and I’ll read all the answers together on the final podcast of 2012.
