There are 24 days left until 2012.  And for me that’s 24 days left to finish a big deadline I’ve imposed on myself.  It’s been looming over my head since last summer, and I’ve made little progress.

I began to think my goal was too ambitious, and let myself believe a few too many lies in the meantime.

Funny what a deadline will do though.  Last week (in one day) I finished half of what I’ve spent months trying to get on paper.  Why?  Because I set a goal and felt it encroaching upon me.

I finally stopped believing the lies, stopped giving excuses.
There is no excuse.
And I can’t let 2011 come to an end without a fight.

I must try.

What did you want to do before this year is over?
