Welcome Wednesday: Do you have a New Year's Tradition?

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

The end of 2021 is fast approaching! I don't know about everyone else, but I feel like 2021 has been a very blessed year for me. To some, this is the time to make a New Year's Resolution. To other's it's a one or two words as your guiding principal for the year.

My question for you this week is do you have a New Year's Resolution? or a Guiding word? If so what are they? If not, I'd love to hear if you have any other traditions for starting the year on the right foot.

I have become a big fan of the guiding principal for the year. Starting 2022, I'm going to try and focus more on "Balance". My wife and I just had our second child. I have been in my current job for a little over a year and I feel like I have established myself there. My focus for 2022 needs to be about making sure that I achieve that proper balance of getting my work accomplished while making sure that I have time for both my family and myself.

It's your turn now! I'd love to hear from everyone in the comments.

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year and I'll see you all in 2022!

@Jimmy Seddon thanks for this post. It gave me pause to think. 

My guiding principle for 2022 is Participation. I am often too comfortable doings things alone or by myself to push myself outside of my comfort zone and be participatory.

My New Year's Resolutions are split into personal and professional.

  • PERSONAL - Complete more miles on my bike than I did the past two years combined, which were mired by illness and injury. Now that I am healed physically I need to get over the mental baggage and get back out there.
  • PROFESSIONAL - Attain my first Atlassian certification in Q1.

Thanks @Jimmy Seddon for this last Welcome Wednesday post of the year 2021!

My guiding principle will be the same as yours for 2022, i.e., Balance.

Though I have not thought much about my professional resolutions, but personally, I would want to reduce a few kilos, either by managing my diet or doing more walking or other physical exercises.

Wish you and everyone here a wonderful and Happy New Year!

Stay safe!

I've never really bothered with new years resolutions, mainly because I have a really hard time building a habit so I pretty much need to make resolutions on a weekly basis :þ 

Having said that I like the idea of a guiding principle and I think I'll pinch @Andy Gladstone :þ I definitely need to get out more and do the human thing :þ
