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!!!!!!

New Year Resolution

What is a Resolution?  According to the dictionary, Resolution is “an act or process of resolving”, “the act of analyzing a complex notion into simpler ones”, “the act of answering”, “the act of determining”.  Generally speaking, it is a tradition for people to make New Year Resolutions to resolve something.  Something that we have not been doing that we would like to do or something that we have been doing but would like to do better.  Examples are quit smoking, eat healthy food, lose weight, exercise, make money, and whatever comes to mind.

I know some people even put them on paper.  I congratulate the people who actually work on the Resolutions and make them happen.  However, for most of us, as times go by, things get busy and somehow the New Year Resolutions no longer exist.  We use New Year as a way to assist us in starting something new.  Yet, we seldom follow up and actually make them happen.

It seems like it is something that we pretend that we did and tell ourselves that we have done something for the year.  It is like an illusion that we have resolved something for the New Year.  As years went by, we don’t even have any resolutions anymore.

If we really wanted to “resolve” something or do something different, we can always do them anytime.  We do not have to wait for the New Year.  The New Year is just an excuse for us to delay things or not to do something.  If we really want to do it, we will do it right away without waiting.

With the New Year of 2009 here, let us take a different action and actually do or “resolve” something for a change.  Wish all of you a prosperous New Year!
