I began last year with something I’ve not often begun new years with: a very marked sense of joyous anticipation. This is not to say I greet each year with an Eeyore-like sort of cheerlessness. But the sense of joy mixed with anticipation was quite strong. I felt that something was afoot. I just didn’t know what it would be.
I’ve been revisiting some personal development stuff lately (revisiting personal vision and mission, dealing with grief, going through self- and relationship analysis). One thing I found from FranklinCovey was a free, 30-day trial offer of their PlanPlus for Windows. When it comes to planners, I’m definitely a paper version guy, but the software could convert me to the paperless/computer/PDA sort of planner guy.
