Aloha Friday - Week 14

December 28, 2007

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

Today’s question is:

What’s one thing you’d like to improve on in 2008?

For me, it would probably be my organizational skills. I’ve always prided myself for staying on top of things but 2007 found me lacking. With all of Girlie Girl’s extra curricular activities, household responsibilities, being away for days at a time due to layovers, and blogging deadlines, I’ve been a little overwhelmed. I need to figure out a system to keep track of everything. That is my goal for 2008.

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said:

I am hoping to try to eat (and live) healthier this next year, so I think that one important thing that I’d like to improve on is my family’s diet. We need to eat a lot healthier than we do and hopefully I can find some ways to make that happen. :)

Rach (Heart of Rachel) said:

I wish to have the courage to do the things I’ve always wanted. Not to be afraid to try new things and go out of the norm. To stand on what I believe in.

Laura said:

Well that is a terrific goal! Feel free to come on by and visit. I’m sure some of my “freakish” organizing tendencies will rub off on you…he he.

JHS said:

It’s a toss up between 2 things:

1. My health and fitness. I’ve lost 75 pounds . . . still losing and am determined to hit my ideal weight by the end of 2008.

2. My proficiency on the flute. I intend to intensify my study next year, as our band director is talking about a return performance at Carnegie Hall. Woohoo! To play there once was a dream come true. Twice is more than I could ever have hoped for. I also want to go to Switzerland to study for a week with Sir James Galway in his Master Class that he offers every summer.

Happy New Year!

Rob at Kintropy said:

My wife, Janette, and I are going the organizational route, too. We’re trying to figure a way to coordinate our “have-tos”, “want-tos”, and “should-dos” into some kind of repeating schedule next year. If it’s on the schedule, we can work together to make it happen, make room for the other to complete tasks, etc..

Hopefully, both you and we will both find a good system!


Baby Advice said:

I need to work on being more forgiving, it is really hard for me to put the past in the past

Dana said:

I think my goal will probably be to hone my photography skills…by taking some classes on how to really use my (our - hee hee) new camera. There is much to learn, as I’m sure you know!!!

I hate to make actual New Year’s Resolutions because it is like setting yourself up for failure. So, I make “plans” and then try to keep them. :)

Have a happy New Year Kailani!

Dana’s last blog post..Not much of nuthin!


Write From Karen said:

I don’t know how you do it now, Kailani! I can’t imagine having your schedule.

Me? Technology, technology, technology (wow, that was annoying to type three times, lol). I have a lot of techie things I want to learn this year and hopefully master by the end of 2008.

I also want to take a Flash class with my husband. I think that would be a blast!

Cathi said:

I truly want to become totally organized without anything in the house that isn’t needed so that I know where absolutely everything is without a second thought.
How’s that?? :)

Carey said:

My eating habits, and exercise. I want to start feeling better about myself. When I am feeling sad, i tend to just want to eat, and i need to curb it.

My health - I aim to lose more weight until my brother’s wedding. He told me he will decide on the size of the dress I’ll be wearing. Gasp!!

Renee said:

math skills for me & DD. We’ve both been slackin in the math lessons dept, so I’m hoping that with the new books I’ve bought that we’ll both get caught up.

Swati said:

I really liked your blog Kailani…Nice work!
Well, I wish to plan and organise things better and more efficiently in 2008 :)
Happy new year to u.

Susan S. said:

Oh I think I have tons of areas where I could improve in 2008 LOL!
But the main one would have to be like you….my organizational skills. If I could learn to be more organized I know I could be more productive.
Also, I need to work on goals. Writing them down and sticking to them! I really slack in the area of writing things down. I get so many great ideas in my head then never write them down, thus they never amount to much. So I think this also ties into being more organized!

Great topic and maybe this will be my push to a better and more productive 2008!

Best wishes,


Fresh Girl said:

I want to finally lose the rest of my weight to reach my goal. Unfortunately, that goal’s a little further away after all the eating over the last couple of weeks. :-/

Christine said:

For me it would definetly try to be more organized, and procrastinate less.

Also as a family eat healthier, I know we probably eat healthier because of Josh, but there is always room for improvement.
