No New Years Resolutions For 2011

One of the things that I learned in 2010 was that to get things done, many times you have to work them into your “work flow”. For example, I started responding to support issues faster and more often after I piped them into Thunderbird. I just started using Evernote and I can already see a giant increase in productivity as a result of being able to enteract with all of my notes in a well organized system accross different platforms. Freshbooks competely transformed the way I invoice clients in 2010 and as a result I made a bunch more money because it integrates into my work flow well.

Seeing this need to work my task into my work flow, I have decided to not do yearly resolutions and instead focus on quartly plans. This way I can plan out the quarter I am in, and that only. My goals are more short term and as a result less likely to loose touch with them. Also, I can actually schedule most of them because at the most they are only a few months away. Then when the next quarter rolls around I will set a whole new list.

How are you takling your goals this year?
