    What a great way to think about organizing and achieving your resolutions! I’ve got so much that I’d like to achieve this year. My New Year’s resolution is to tackle and complete one task a day that leads to my bigger goals. I find that breaking big projects or goals down into smaller tasks makes it all seem less overwhelming – and more doable. Have a Happy New Year!

    Hi Diane! Thanks and I’m glad you like the 4Fs. It’s great you’re going to accomplish one task a day that leads to bigger goals …. great approach. I was pretty overwhelmed when I looked at my 2012 goals too. Anything that helps to make achieving goals easier is the way to go in 2012. Happy New Year!

    Hi Dierdre, interesting perspective. I’m fixing a lot of things personally this year and focusing on some new business, possibly backing off from the media outlet for awhile and firing up some more books on Public Relations. I’m definitely going to Save your RSS feed to come back. Please stop by my blog when you get a chance, and I’d love to chat some more. Blessings in 2012!

    Hi Curt … Happy New Year and thank you for the warm wishes. Good to hear you’re focusing on new business and firing up some more books on PR. Your blog looks interesting so I’ll have to check out more of your posts. Looking forward to chatting more and I hope 2012 is a great year!

    Thank you for this. Just focusing on narrowing down your areas of emphasis was really helpful for me. Often I find myself dealing with another F — floundering….which is the absence of focus and needs to be fixed. So, you helped me think about my year ahead and I wish you all the best for a Fantastic 2012.

    Thank you Deborah! I think “Floundering” is one of those “Fs” that is present for many of us. I’m glad I was able to help you think about the year ahead. Good luck and I hope you’re able to achieve all of your goals in 2012!

    This is an awesome way to categorise resolutions for 2012 Deirdre – it’s tempting to spread yourself too thin across a dozen resolutions that in reality just can’t be achieved all at once. Thank you for sharing this framework for powering ahead with resolutions – I’m going to adopt this model and start to allocate my own resolutions within these categories. I have an excellent feeling about 2012!

    Hi Jamie! Thanks for the feedback on my 4Fs video post. Great to hear you’re going to adopt my model. I agree, 2012 is shaping up to be an incredible year 🙂
