What 3 Things Will You Do In 2006?

What are the 3 Things you are going to get done in 2006?

Every year around this time I start asking myself this question. The exercise of narrowing it down to only three things is actually much harder than it seems. Usually I can come up with a dozen things I’d like to do but of course most of them I never will.

So by really forcing myself to choose only three things I have to think hard about what my priorities are and what I’m going to focus on in the coming year.

Another trick is that all Things are equal in the sense that if I pick one personal Thing (say, spend at least one night a week with my friends) then that can bump off a business Thing (get a promotion). This process of picking and choosing, bumping off good goals for better ones can be agonizing and it always makes me think of that old nugget of wisdom, “You can do anything, but you can’t do everything.”

How do you set your priorities for the coming year?
