New year, new year's resolutions - both go together, whether you're a friend of resolutions, or firmly deny their usefulness.
This is my attempt to lay out a few things I would like to do (differently) in 2016. It's not about a radical change, re-invention or ruthless self-optimization. Rather, it is about getting a bit more organized ("being organized" being one of the things I often struggle with) about a few things I consider important.
And we all know that the main issue with new year's resolutions is the fact that we harldly ever achieve them, which in turn leaves us frustrated and feeling inadequate (or, in the better case, we just laugh about the resolution and ironically state that we were never that serious about it anyway).
So I want to make my resolutions achievable by
- breaking them down into very specific actions
- and tackling a few of them each month, rather than everything at once and without a real time frame
I have no idea whether this will work, or it will just stress me, through self-imposed restrictions and deadlines that come on top the manyfold demands and stressors life already has in place. I also might give this up, lose motivation, forget about it, ...a few weeks into the experiment. But it's worth a try, I thought.
And this blog is much less for everyone else, than it is just for me, to keep track of this "project" (or whatever to call it) and "get organized" (see above!) about it.
