“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”
~William Jennings Bryan
First off, Happy New Year! I hope you feel excitement at the anticipation of a new year filled with wonderful possibilities!
New Year’s resolutions are pointless if they don’t include a specific plan and a time fence. For the third year in a row I’m going to follow Leo Babauta’s 6 Change Method for making some real improvement this year.
January/February resolution: To successfully do my peer talks in Spanish
You know those people who can speak a foreign language with their native accent in tow and make loads of grammar mistakes and just not care? Yeah, I’m not one of them. Having grown up with Spanish speaking parents makes me feel a bit of shame about my not being able to speak like a native. But, I love hearing people with accents so why do I hate my own gringa accent? Anyway, I have two presentations I’m going to give people with diabetes in Spanish in January and February and I want to do them well and preferably not sweat buckets while my blood sugars sky rocket.
The plan? Practice, practice, practice! Rather than procrastinate, procrastinate, procrastinate.
I normally write out all my month’s goals but I feel like I don’t know what’s needed until I get there so I will be figuring that out along the way.
Wish me luck!/Deseame suerte!
