People were saying making resolutions was passé (no longer fashionable). What is the use of making yearly resolutions when one cannot keep them? I thought so in the past but I have changed my mind.
I have a different take on setting resolutions for the New Year. These resolutions are thought through carefully based on the conditions I am in at the time of drafting one. It is set with what I hope to achieve with one-year duration in mind. I treat these resolutions as my guideposts to address some weaknesses I have been facing. It also spurs me to do something substantial like writing my third volume of Living Investment for publication next year. It sets some good behavioural traits over coping with daily living and some annoyances in life.
Having said that, I would not be too upset if I could not accomplish the things I want to do at the end of the year. I know I know. Some people may say then why set these resolutions? Setting resolutions beats not setting at all. At least, I know where I am heading in the New Year.
At the end of the year, I then review what I had done with regard to the resolutions. It could be less or more than what I had set out to do. It’s OK either way. I am accountable to myself and that is that. Let live and be happy!
