I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to write down one thing you plan to do in the next year.
I don’t make a lot of plans. While I do have a life (bucket) list, it doesn’t drive me on a regular basis. I have enough commitments that I prefer to not add other items if I don’t need to do so.
For the next year, as I think about something that I might want to do, there are a lot of items outside of my control. I hate to plan something based on what others might not do, so I’m thinking about what can I control and get done.
I think the item for me isn’t big, but it is something I need to do. I built a generator shed last year, but it’s too small, and doesn’t have proper ventilation. I can control my actions to work on that, so I’m going to spend time fixing that this summer and get it ready for winter.
A small project, but it will make me feel good to get it done.
