What were you like before? What about now?
Does the “before” matches with the “now”?
If no, do you prefer the old days or the current life?
If yes, do you like how things have always been?
Oh look! There was even a movie on this rhetoric recently!
I bet everyone’s story can be as exciting as that…once you found your resolution.
So, what are your resolutions for this year?
Are you achieving them yet?
Most of us don’t hit most of them. That “most of us” includes me. In fact, I’m quite sure most of you out there fare much better than me. Maybe that’s why it’s better to list down 10 resolutions so at least we can get 1 or 2 of them 🙂
If we go along with that train of thought, then it should be better to have more resolutions with the intention of completing 1 and there is absolutely no need to feel any guilt for any having leftovers (unless you promised your boss you will submit it on time). After all, the other resolutions may have some synergy / inspirational effect on each other which may lead you to some interesting new areas or depth. That makes it a “10 becomes 1” rather than a “1 out of 10”. So maybe next round, we try 10 resolutions with the anticipation that 1 will be completed!
What would you say to setting no resolutions each year since we cannot hit anything?
Listen to me very carefully my friend, starving yourself will not bring you peace.
