New Year sounds like a rusty jingle.
Resolution takes it further, still sounding rusty sans jingle.
So lets try and solve this dilemma of aspirational, achievable and personal resolutions, once again.
What is the perfect resolution after all? Five things I’ll keep in mind this year. Starting with the obvious.
It doesn’t have to be a new year to be a new resolution.
Aforementioned and stated obviously, time is a human-made phenomenon. Don’t let it guide you.
If you asked for my New Year Resolution, it would be to truly find out who I am.
As has been said before, the quote exemplifies it all. Isn’t a start to a year akin to some sort of marked realization? I have found that it doesn’t necessarily need to be the year when this realization occurs, but nonetheless serves as a reminder of sorts. The key is to realize.
Celebrate what you want to see more of.
Follow a passion. Any passion. Whether its sheep biotech, investments or social networking. Making it productive, enriching, and fulfilling to the self.
Cheers to a new year, and a chance to get it right.
We all make mistakes, but mistakes showcase the efforts of trying, and trying is the first step to breaking out of a shell of the mundane to create something new. So in other words, make mistakes, happily.
The year is neither an end nor a beginning, but a going on.
Perhaps I realized a while back that its not so much about what point in time we pause to reflect but rather the experience that has collectively come to an obvious distillation point.
Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed.
Don’t let hype make you overpromise. Try to run in parallel with your resolution, never allowing it to fall behind, and most importantly, never letting it run ahead into oblivion, leaving you behind.
So while it doesn’t have to be a new year to make a resolution, follow a few pearls of wisdom if you want to make one anyway.
