As per my usual, there were some pretty cool things from 2012 that I inadvertently left out!
First, I wrote an early year post about SMART goals. One of those SMART goals is to reduce my “stuff” by greater than 500 pounds throughout the year. This could be clothes, furniture, paperwork, or any other things that I’ve been toting around that I could probably ditch. I achieved my “goal” early on in the year as I relocated from Ohio to Georgia, but I’ve also not provided myself a viable measuring system nor a method for tracking. When I share my upcoming post about SMART goals I will use this as an example of why measuring and tracking systems are important.
The following are the posts with highest traffic from the past year (and then some):
