This year, there’s a lot I could’ve done better, but I think the biggest thing would be just to not procrastinate. I’m always putting things off, even things I want to do. It’s not the way I want to be, and it’s certainly not something I’d like to continue.
I think at times I could’ve handled myself better as well, in terms of calming myself down and not repeatedly going to my friends to help with the same things over and over again. If I listened to their advice, if I worked through what the real “problems” I was having were, I probably could’ve prevented a lot of the problems I had.
I think another real problem is commitment. So many times I think I can do something, or I set out to learn something, but I give up. I often get afraid if I don’t progress as fast as others, or I get bored, or sometimes I’m just simply distracted by the next thing that catches my interest. I want to learn how to figure out what it is I really want to learn and do with my time, and then stick with it.
Also, there’s a certainly laziness/fear I have. If something seems too difficult or it will involve confrontation, I’d rather avoid it even if it’s to my detriment. If it involves going out of my comfort zone, chances are I’ll do everything I can to avoid it.
I think I could’ve also done well to be positive more often. Sometimes (especially with people) I think I was much more negative than I should’ve been, and some situations I let myself get out of control for no real, good reason.
As the last one I’m gonna write, I could’ve done a better job with creating and sticking to new, positive habits. There was so much I wanted to learn or incorporate into a routine that I just never did. I’d love to, at the end of next year, say I’ve at least actively achieved certain habits or skills (or, the habit of improving on certain skills). I’d love for 2013 to be a year where I do and stick to some awesome goals!
Also, just to divide the amount of prompts I need to catch up on, I will be doing prompts 8 and 7 tomorrow, on Christmas morning! See you guys then, and have a Merry Christmas! =)
