There are not many days to the end of the year.
What one thing – something you’ve been meaning to do for a while – will you commit to doing before the year is over?
Don’t Start The New Year Wishing You Had…
Have you been planning to:
- Say sorry to someone?
- Improve your productivity and time management?
- Lose weight?
- Invite someone you’d like to know better to have coffee with you?
- Be more neat and tidy?
- Organize your paperwork and filing?
- Organize your closet?
- Declutter your friendships?
- Make progress on your goals?
- Stop being a people pleaser?
- Something else? (Here are 20 things to tick off before the end of the year.)
Whatever has been niggling away at you all year, decide to make a start.
Because starting is the hardest part. The rest will be easier.
Need convincing? Here are 3 great reasons to start today.
Make a Public Commitment To Yourself
Come on – make a public commitment right here and now!
- Decide what you will complete before the end of the year.

- Commit yourself by leaving a comment below.
The next few days will pass anyway. How will you feel when they’re over?
Start it. Do it. Achieve it.

Commitment to make sure I exercise every day, even if its only for 20 mins. I saw a great quote yesterday at r sales conference. You can make excuses or you can make progress but you can’t do both.
I am ready to start this declutter journey, I found commitement with the help of all this wonderful tools.
Really wish I had been organized enough to find this post on the actual date when there was 43 days left to the year…my commitment is to maintain my recent bursts of organization and to embrace the empowerment which it brings.
You know what Mary? I think you found it at the PERFECT time. I love your commitment to maintaining your organizing habits – it’s not easy for anyone. You might like this article: http://www.getorganizedwizard.com/blog/2009/09/why-self-improvement-is-like-slaying-vampires/ 🙂
Cool idea. Commitment is an excellent starting point. It should also be noted that one should have the flexibility to change their motivation in order to keep commitments fresh1.

I am committed to organized the pictures of my kids! I am so glad that digital photos rescue me when they were about 6 and 8 years old… but I haven’t deal with their early years pictures and I have a big mess… I don’t know how or where to begin. Any suggestion?
Do you mean physical photos Jaritza? Do you NEED to organize them? Could you put them all in a lovely box and bring them out to look through when you feel nostalgic? That’s what I’ve done with mine. Let me know if you want other ideas and I’ll post a question on the Facebook page.
I will love to have some suggestions!! Yes, the physical ones. I gathered all of them and are at my dining table (useles for dine now..). I bought some photos boxes but have not move on. The newborn and first years are already on albums (not lignin free, I will have to re-made those…). But form there on, I have a mess of developed pictures envelopes all over… some with the date/event written on, others with no clue of the date…
Thanks for your help Michelle!!
I’ll ask the question tomorrow (I don’t like to over-post and have just posted) and I’ll paste the link here for you Jaritza. 🙂

What are the “20 things to tick off before the end of the year”? Link doesn’t work.
Hi Candice. I’m so sorry for the issue – it’s all fixed now. 🙂
I’ll commit to getting laundry done, car smogged (ha), dishes washed, invoices out, getting guest room ready for the new year…
Car smogged in or out side the passenger space?
A good list Kathi! DO IT! 🙂
