January 2, 2017
Another year in the rearview mirror. 2015 was a really tough year, but 2016 was actually pretty amazing. I had the privilege of working with so many amazing new people and met lots of awesome knitters and crocheters. Looking back on the goals I had for 2016, I achieved many of them, but because of my personality, it is hard to focus on what I did accomplish because I often look at what I need to do this year to accomplish the goals I didn’t meet. I’m not really a glass is half empty type of person, but when it comes to my business, I’m always striving for more…which is exhausting.
My husband and I have very different personalities when it comes to work. He is easy going and is happy with where he is in the moment. I’ve never been able to look at where I’m standing, but always looking for where I want to go. I suppose that it is good to be working hard for the next goal, but I want to try and spend 2017 being happy with where I am right now and appreciate what my hard work has afforded me in the moment. I guess I’m saying I need to be more like my husband! He does help remind me of all the awesome things I’ve done and is working at helping me to stop and smell the roses!
So what are my goals for 2017? Much more of what I’ve done this last year, but with two differences. I want a more focused business plan and more importantly, this year I want to enjoy each accomplishment – no matter how small or how big. I have so many amazing things lined up and I can’t wait to share the future of KnitsyKnits with everyone!
