With endings come new beginnings. A time to shed your old state of being or self image and replace it with something more spiffy. Of course this can’t happen without action. Without a plan or an idea of what you will do differently, don’t think January 1st will usher in anything but a hang over. I’ve always been a fan of making objectives measurable when possible. Like, instead of saying “read more”, say, “read 30 minutes a day.” Even if you miss some days chances are you will read more. Anyhoo, I jotted down some things, resolutions if you will, I want to keep in mind during 2014. Feel free to use these if they apply or come up with your own.
By the way, I give my friends & family license to remind me of these during the year if the need arises.
I will make my status updates pale in comparison to my real life adventures.
I will hold everyone to their word. Especially me.
I will not let unpaid work spill into time set aside for leisure.
I will leave the house at least twice a week without a laptop. (I will have a tablet. I’m not a monk).
I will respond to everyone in my personal sphere in a timely fashion.(within 6 hours)
I will respond to everyone in my business sphere in a timely fashion. (within 8 hours)
I will give more time and energy to those in my personal sphere.
I will only enter into partnerships that are clearly mutually beneficial.
I will get up early every weekday (before 7am).
I will sleep in most weekends.
I will workout less but go for walks more.
I will stretch and stay flexible in body and spirit
I will eat when hungry and ask myself, “why am I eating?” if I’m not hungry.
I will attack my action item list everyday with vigor, knowing full well that I will never actually be done.
I will listen intently and confirm what I hear. I will not draw conclusions on partial data.
I will value my time and quickly cut off things that prove to be a waste of time
I will go to bed around midnight on weekdays! (I need help with this one)
I will prepare my clothes the night before
I will call my mother back.
