It’s that time of year again. Time for us to look back at what we’ve accomplished this year. Time for us to look forward to what we want to accomplish next year. So today I want to talk about growth years and achievement years.
Achievement years are pretty self-explanatory. Those are the years that you’re kicking ass and taking names, crossing those big goals off your to-do list, and generally seeing things shake out as a result of your planning and hard work. Achievement years are the years when you have no difficulty listing what you’ve accomplished.
2016 was an achievement year for me. My husband and I bought our first house; we started rescuing and fostering animals for adoption; I started “going steady” with one client, because that client always had plenty of interesting, fulfilling work for me.
