"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Draw a plan for 2016

oussouss Posts: 55 ✭✭
Good evening every one, and welcome to my first discussion subject ever in this wonderful forum. With no more than three days left for the new year to begin, it is an opportunity for each and everyone of us to draw a plan or to reshape his/her original plan for 2016. The idea is that we share dreams, ideas, plans, experiences, and anything that serves the purpose of planing a vision of achievements for the new year. Having that said, let's brainstorm and learn from each others experiences!

    @nany - what do you think it would be nice to achieve in the 2016 ?

    I already had the first four months of next year mapped out @ouss (travelling to Vietnam, Thailand, Bangladesh, Nepal and France). I'm only just starting to work out what and where I want to be for the the following eight months. My problem is that I have too many ideas!

    @ouss I think I will go out with my friends to spend a wonderful day

    try to focus on what went wrong in 2015 , and what went good, and try to ask yourself why did it went this way ? that would give you an idea of what to do in the coming time to get better results ,,,?

    good luck for that ... but don't think just for today or tomorrow !! try to look forward at a year vision and a year planing ...
  • nanynany Posts: 50 Inactive
    Yes sure... you're right @ouss
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 31,042 mod
    That's hard @ouss. I'm not sure if anything (within my control that is) went wrong for me last year. So I suppose I'd be happy if next year is as good as this one.

    I do not want to be backward in 2016. I want to be a good English user.

    First of all, I want to use very well english because I need it.
    The second is to change my behaviour, to make more friends.
    Also I want to put the things in order on my new job.
    The 2016 it will be a great year for every one that want to make something different, something new, I feel that.

    I didn't post in this thread, but I DID stick to my plans for last year. I planned to buy a new car, which I did, to gain a couple of achievements at work, which I did, and I wanted to save enough money for a house deposit, which I also did! (Though I haven't actually made the purchase yet as I haven't found the perfect house).

    My main goal is to taught english language. It is my goal for this year, and sure it`s be my goal in the next year. When I learn english language, then will began new goals which I have to achieve. My goal is not only to learn english, I also have another goals, but this is for me currently the highest goal. I really hope that I will achieve that goal.

    I can't remember what plans I had this time last year, except that the past year went okay, so I probably did what I set out to do @Lynne. But I'm not a very ambitious person and I'm easily pleased!
