New Year Resolutions 2011

Every year, I write down a list of resolutions of eating healthy, do not procrastinate, work harder, make more money, clean my workroom etc.  Some other common ones are losing weight, find a job, find a boyfriend / girlfriend, etc.  But every year, it seems time just go by and the resolutions are forgotten.  I was thinking of not writing down anything this year and just take one day at a time.  Then I got an email from an old friend of mine.  She has her own business and she writes a Blog.  She was sharing her resolutions and I find it down to earth, specific and achievable.  I thought well, we do need something that we can achieve to improve our quality of life.  So, I decided to write down my New Year resolutions and share them with you all.  Well, I have about 9 on my list but some of them are a little more private than I wish to share.  So, here it is:

1.      Maintain my daily, weekly and monthly routine.  There are times that something happened and things get interrupted and not done.  It is not a pretty sight to see all these things piled up and not done.  So, I decided to have a monthly plan, then a weekly and then daily which will then be easier to maintain.  If some things do not get done today, I will get it done the next day or within the week.  Of course, the goal is to have them done monthly.

2.      Call my parents once every two weeks.  You may think this is strange.  I have been calling them around once every month and more during the holidays, birthdays, etc.  The intention is to call them at least once a week but I know I am stretching it.  So, it will have to be once every two weeks.  (There are many issues with my relationships with my parents and I am working on that.)

3.      Invite someone to lunch or coffee / tea once a month.  When things get hectic, I tend to give myself excuses of not seeing and cultivating my friendships.  Of course, relationships are important to give me the balanced life that I want to create.

4.      Make a habit of follow through with things.  Many times I say “I will send it to you” or “we will get together” or “I will call you next week”; and then never follow through.  So, I am going to use a note pad or my phone to take notes and follow through.  This leads to the next resolution #5.

5.      Say things that you mean and do not say things that you do not mean.  Most of the time, I will say I will do something and then, I forget.  However, sometimes I probably just say it without meaning to follow through.  This also applies to any arguments or conflicts with people.  Do not say things that you really do not mean. 

Now you can work on your list and may be you want to share them too.  Have a great 2011!!!!!!

The other day I met a woman. She said she needed some help. So, I went through a few things with her and she gave herself (not me) a lot of excuses why she cannot do certain things. One thing interesting is that she said “I’m sure something is out there for me; so, I am waiting.” I was astounded to hear that. She also said “I want to do something and I am waiting for that something to come.” Normally, if there is something out there, one would go and find it.

Waiting for something to come or happen is like “I want to go to the car and I am waiting for my leg to move” or “I am waiting for the car to come to me”. When you want to go to the car, you just pick up your feet and walk to the car. If you do not move, the car will not come to you.

We often wait for things to happen and we give ourselves excuses why things don’t go the way we want.

Remember, the car is always there, it is up to you to get there.
