2010 New Year’s Resolutions

This could just be a sign of old age, but the years seem to come and go in the blink of an eye.. It’s now 2010.. Two more years until the “end of the world” in 2012 as foretold by translations of the Mayan calendar.. Whether the world really does end or not (as it’s highly probable) it’s a new year with (re-)new hopes and aspirations. The strongest of these are captured in our new years resolutions. I haven’t had the opportunity to gooogle everybody’s top 10 or fav five, but I suspect it would be

  1. Loose weight / Get in shape
  2. Be a better (personality/actions) person
  3. Start a new hobby or get back into an old one
  4. Quit smoking or some other addictive habit
  5. Live a healthier lifestyle

Instrumenting such dramatic change can be often time nothing more than 3 weeks of attempting and 49 more of the status quo. Of course its better to try and fail then never try at all..

This year I have a couple new year’s resolutions.. Three of the smaller yet meaningful ones I have this year are (in no particular order):

  1. To read more
  2. To write more
  3. Make todo lists

I think its important to read to not only keep up with the world and current events, but also to keep our mind active and engaged. No man is an island unto himself, and being thus, we have to be aware and informed about the the world we live in, and how it has, does, may, and will affect our lives. Of course, the needs of the individual are equally important. Top on that list is the need for self-expression. I believe writing provides people a medium to collect and express their thoughts. Of course its good to get out and socialize and verbalize ourselves and our beliefs, but I think writing is a better instrument to collect and nurture our infant thoughts. The finally one on my list above is to make todo lists. I used to be an avid believer of todo lists, but somewhere down the line, this awesome management tool feel into neglect. I think todo lists helps us not only keep track of what we need to do, but also helps us budget our time, itemize and prioritize complex and in-depth tasks, as well as removes some of the mental clutter and the anxiety and stress that goes along with it.

So bottom line, I will be taking better advantage of my Amazon Prime membership, starting with A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, will be blogging more, and trying to be better organized…
