Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?
I actually blogged about this not too long ago, shortly before I switched my blog here when I announced my resignation of my VP of Development position for a small non-profit. This past year I’ve given myself permission to take a step back and drop some things that weren’t a top priority. I really enjoy volunteering, but it took me a while to realize I can’t say ‘yes’ to everything AND give every project my best effort. I’m fortunate that I’m able to choose the projects that are important to me, but I know I have to limit my involvement or things start to slip.
And it’s worked out pretty well for me. I’m working on some projects that are really exciting. This year I was able to finish The Demons You Know and have begun the querying process. That’s a major milestone and it wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t learned to say no.
