Wow! Our twelfth year doing this, and I’m STILL not organized! Haha!
I know a lot of folks are saying they will be glad to see this year behind them. Me, I’m of the mind that, just because the calendar is turning over, doesn’t mean things are going to automagically change instantly, or change for the better, even. But there is hope!
I saw a meme the other day that said: “You don’t realize how much of an introvert you are until a pandemic strikes, and your life doesn’t really change that much!” That would be me, and in some instances, it did change for the better! And even with the not-so-good things that came along, I’m not one to complain, because I’m always aware that somewhere, there are people who are way worse off than me.
These last few days of the year are always my last chance to wrap up as many loose ends as possible so I can start the new year off fresh. I know I need to keep working toward my ultimate goal of having things under control around here, so I’m doing this because I still NEED to!
I made good progress in 2020, probably because I stayed home a lot more, so I had more time here to work on things. I’d really like to think that it’s because my long-term efforts are finally paying off, and I’m finally getting things to where I want them to be. It really could be both, and I am planning to make even better progress throughout 2021. Would you like to join me?
If you’ve joined me for The Final Countdown before, I’ll be thrilled to have you join in again!
If you’re new here, welcome! I hope you’ll join in this time, as we try to start 2021 off a little more organized.
Here’s how it works . . .
I’ll give you till January 7th to complete all the tasks and leave your comments. I’ll draw for the three winners late in the day on the 7th. That should give you time to take a good crack at all three tasks.
So there you have it — simple rules, and prizes!
I’ll post our first task tomorrow, so be sure to check back in. Or if you’re not subscribed already, you can subscribe to the “News From the Ranch” using the form at top right, so you’ll automatically be notified when the tasks are posted.
Are you ready?
