Look Back 2011 And Make New Year Resolutions!
(Ending Sunday 1th January 2011)
This week is the last week of the year. It’s time to say good-bye to 2011 and welcome 2012! A new year always brings new hopes and great enthusiasm. With a new year starting just around the corner, we all plan for new year celebrations, look forward to a fresh start and hope things will be better in the coming year! It’s time we review, place closures to our past, take the key learning and make new resolutions and challenges. It’s the reason we are all celebrating New Year with pomp and joy around the world!
The final week 2011 challenge is to spend time with self, have a look at what we did and achieved in 2011; take away the key learning; and decide the directions, next steps and challenges for 2012!
Don’t be sad that this is the last challenge of the year, because looking ahead in 2012, there will be many more challenges waiting for us!:)

Resolutions are meant to be positive, motivating and take you to the next level of self-assurance! If you find yourself trapped by it, it might not be what you really want. If you have a big goal which is seemed intimidating to achieve, you may want to break it down into small ones.
