Does anybody else sit down and set some goals for the next year? You know, what they want, where they want to go, any changes to make?

I used to do it at New Year, but found it all too depressing and maudlin...
I usually have a couple of days to reflect on things and then set out new plans....Last year I needed to get out of debt, be more assertive, give the kids more time, and not be scared of a certain person.

Does it all sound a bit 'life coach'?

There's nothing wrong in aspiring to better things, and then meeting those aspirations.

It's work appraisals that I think are a joke. Utter cobblers and a waste of time.

ps. the bogey man is just a fictitious character :wink:

I think that if one wants to set goals then they first of all have to be realistic and broken down into chunks. Setting your sights too high and not being able to realise them is probably very depressing and demotivating. I guess when planning to get out of debt, that is what you had to do, sit down, work out income and expenditure and come to a monthly repayment figure. However, we should all do that before we get into debt, but rarely do.

I reckon that it is no bad thing though to sit down and work out what makes you happy, what makes you unhappy and trying to charter a course to change things for the better, but in your example, which problem was troubling you the most, the person that scared you or the debt? I reckon, it is better to put one's efforts into dealing with the biggest problem first even if it a slow process in chunks and chip away at the smaller problems in tandem or, just put them on the back burner until fit to deal with. Although, you have conflicting goals in your example as if you wanted to put in more overtime or a second job to help with the debt problem, how are you going to make more time for the kids. Life is full of compromises is it not.

I was troubled equally by the debt and the feelings surrounding the person. So I tackled practical matters first which, in my opinion, are always easier to tackle than 'feelings'....
My debt was small compared to some, and was the result of unexpected medical expenses. But a couple of 'tight' Christmases and no holiday abroad for couple of years have sorted it. And I'm debt free apart from a modest mortgage...
I'm closer to my kids than ever at the moment, and am very proud at the young people they've become.....I just needed to sit and take the time to notice it.
And finally, I tackled my fear of the person. Difficult for me cos its someone I respected. But it's done.

So yes, I achieved everything I set out to do last year....

I'm not particularly interested in seeing the world, or owning a flash car, so my goals are usually about 'feelings', I am a bird after all :wink:
Practically, I need to start putting aside a university fund for the lad....

Some folk are 'into' personal development and some aint....
When I die I don't want folk to remember how I looked or where I lived. But I'd like them to say 'she helped, she made me feel special'...


:wink:

I wouldn't worry about it Nutty, I'm sure if you went to hospital for an anal analysis, the results would be 'Acute Arse'. :lol:

Nuts. I am sure you will be remembered for making people feel special. You are a very caring person and some of the people who benefit from that will appreciate and remember it.


Now if you could give me a special feel.... :wink:

By the way the rest of you, what's wrong with being an analyst. I do it nearly every day. 8)

as young employee i actually look forward (sadly) to my apprasil

hopefully the management can help give me bit of guidance in what direction they see me going into for the future, suggest approiate training and possible faults i have which i could iron out! and finally just to mainly re-assure me that im doing what im supposed to be doing to the top of my ability

the problem is my line manager is ALWAYS too busy and give a sigh whenever its time to try and re-arrange the Apprasil

Everyone should be spared the time for an appraisal. Trouble is when you become that line manager and you have a dozen of them to do and a hundred urgent deadlines you will see that it can be difficult at times.

Oh yes. I hadn't noticed. I see he looks forward to it sadly as well. Is it a bit like Clearasil?

And there's plenty on here who are willing to suggest possible faults for him to iron out. :wink:

You want to try doing yearly appraisals with 20 people who want to desperately retire or leave, it's certainly challenging.
