Do you still practise them?
Do you follow them till the very end?
No and No.
I have long since banish the practise of making resolutions for the new year.
Because I have never followed it through.
For some reason, my unconscious mind associates "resolutions" with "a half-way done project".
So nowadays, I would rather create "Mission for the Year (insert year here)".
The concept is still the same - things that I would like to accomplish.
But somehow, I am able to achieve more with the revised title.
I like to limit my goals - just so that I won't be overwhelmed and pressurised if I can't make time to accomplish all of it.
I am human after all.
This year, I have 3 :
1) Adopt a healthy and balanced lifestyle
With regular exercise (eventhough how light it may be) and smarter food choices (of course, not forgetting those occassional indulgences), I may just have MORE energy to accomplish anything.
2) Improve my time-management skills
Juggling being a full-time working mum, wife and still being myself is no easy feat. But with proper planning, I can be better at "having my pie and eating it". Insya ALLAH. Even heroes need help.
3) Be realistic when I plan my day.
Not being able to complete all that is on my to-do list just stresses me out. So I am learning to limit my daily to-do list to just 4 goals/day. Even superherous need help.
So what are your MISSION for this year of the Dragon?
