New Year’s Resolutions are usually vapid and mostly go incomplete and forgotten about a week or two into the brand new year. I suggest a new system to rely upon for you “resolutions” this year. Make a list of things you should do to improve the quality of your life during the next year. Don’t make them vague or un-doable. Simply make a list of things to accomplish. Revise this list throughout the year; add new items as you go and mark through the things you feel you’ve actually accomplished.
Keep the list on you as part of your pocket journal or hipster-PDA to remind you everyday of what you hope to create and do in this brand new year.
For a small example, here’s mine:
- Learn Python and/or PHP
- Slow Down
- Go to more parties
- Read more
- Spend less time doing nothing
- Create more
- Start meditating again
- Finish what I start
