I always feel maudlin at the end of the year. It's nothing to do with Christmas - not my religion. It's more to do with the lack of progress I make in a year when compared with my hopes.
Every year I write a "situation review" with eleven sections covering differnt aspects of my life, and concluding with some targets, or aspirations, for the new year. I don't think I'm brave enough to publish last year's on my web site, but suffice it to say that I'm disappointed with my performance in the last year.
I won't fall into the comfortable trap of another whinge on the hardships of life, but it's very disheartening to see that the areas in which I had predicted progress were entirely obvious - I achieved my targets in the "easy" things, but have made no progress at all on some fundamentals.
I feel old as I move into 2003.
