In the firing squad when the revolution comes

2017/18 – What Happened ?

This time last year I wrote about my plans for the coming year, and the goals I was going to aim for.

Those things were

  1. Keep rebuilding the finances, adding to savings and so on.
    By the end of this year, I’ll have completed the whole bankruptcy process, and it should be off my credit history. (As I understand it. Some people have said it only comes off at six years from the end of the bankruptcy period, which’d make it September 2019. We’ll see)
  2. Exercise more, lose weight, improve health
    Another ongoing process, carried over from 2016/17
  3. Complete September’s walking marathon
    This imploded epically in 2017, so it’s another carry-over.  And this year I’ll do some more training, and not destroy my feet four weeks before it…
  4. Write more
    Actually complete some stuff, and see what to do with it from there.
    I’ve also got some tech answers to this, giving me more time and space for writing (I hope)
  5. Do less
    I’ve written about this before, but I am *really* bad at doing nothing. Lazy days do my head in, and I end up feeling stupidly guilty about “wasting” a day.  But conversely, I’m acknowledging that I do need downtime for other things. So I need this as a reminder.
  6. Business ideas
    Look at completing some of the business ideas and plans, and see what I can do with them from there.

And how did I do ?  Not too bad…

  1. Keep rebuilding the finances, adding to savings and so on.
    Fairly successful – I’ve kept rebuilding, the bankruptcy is now off my credit score, and I’m keeping on rebuilding
  2. Exercise more, lose weight, improve health
    Still ongoing.  I’ve been doing more, going to the gym more, and taking a lot of information in about my health, weight, fitness etc over the year, so I feel better prepared again
  3. Complete September’s walking marathon
    Again, a failure – although through lack of preparation, rather than health/foot issues
  4. Write more
    Didn’t happen. Ideas, and started a few bits, but nothing that’s been completed, let alone released into the world.
  5. Do less
    A gruesome, gruesome failure.
  6. Business ideas
    Ongoing. I’ve launched a couple of smaller things, and been working on a larger project (as well as some stuff I’m working on this week) so it could’ve been a lot worse. (But could’ve been a lot better, too)

Next… What’s the plan for 2018/19 ?
