It is the time of year when people are encouraged to set resolutions. My resolution is not to have any resolutions. That is simply enough.
It is the time to look back retrospectively over the last year and the last decade. All well and good but that might require looking back at those years of resolutions lost. Since I already stated that I was not going to have any resolutions, it might be best not to look back on any of the 'lost' years.
That is not to say I would not set some goals or have goals set for me. Recently it was evaluation time at work. (Yes, I did hear that collective groan from those of you reading this.) You have all been through that. I had my goals set for me but as evaluations go, this last one was golden. I finally found another boss who 'gets' me. Thanks goodness for that.
In more than one of my former jobs, it was goals, goals, goals. Mostly unrealistic goals set forth by the number crunchers who lacked the humanity to factor in the human component of the goal. Okay, now I know there are a couple of former co-workers of mine who read the Blurbs and I am taking bets on who responds first. LOL
Goals are not the harbinger of all evil. It is good to set them as it can keep a person on some short of track. It is best not to wander aimlessly - even though I might like to try that if I ever win the lottery. In one job, a co-worker used the K.I.S.S theory. No, this has nothing to do with the rock and roll band. This is the keep-it-simple- stupid theory. While this theory might not appeal to some of you, it is actually not bad. It is best not to overly complicate matters because things usually one matter to you. And why would you want to work yourself into a dither? Life is too short.
There you have it. I don't have any resolutions. My goals were set for me. K.I.S.S. is a good theory to follow. The decade is already looking up. LOL
