Between the two, I realized my biggest problem was determining what the "Realistic" part of S.M.A.R.T. goals (see Tip #1 on this post) really means and how to truly prioritize them. Those two things were the main reasons why I was able to stay on track at the end of the year and get a few projects competed even while juggling a Christmas gift project and Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery without getting discouraged or feeling like I was going crazy.
I also have stashed no less than five different Lone Star designs, all using different approaches to the construction.

I'd also like to make some headway on some decorating projects like my Halloween quilt and a few wallhangings I want to make for the house. Hopefully what I learned last year about planning and deadlines, will clarify for me just how much additional time, realistically, I can devote to these projects if at all. If I realize I can't get them done, then at that moment it will be time to decide what will take precedence. I'm also sure there will be those times when the project du' jour may be frustrating me and I will welcome having a diversion at hand.
