More often than not, with new year comes new year’s resolution. People would vow to start doing or not doing the list of things they swear to resolve after the clock strikes 12 midnight on the 1st of January. Well, I am not an exemption.
However, mine was done a bit earlier. I believe in the statement of Stephen Covey in his book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People which refers to habits being associated with the pull of gravity wherein the more you go against it, the harder it becomes.
Hence, so as not to make my new years resolution a torture rather than a positive change of lifestyle, I started reorganizing my thoughts and way of life as early as December. I deserve a pat on the back from my own self for making it little by little (laugh out loud).
Now I’m ready to kick off the year with less pressure being able to keep myself on track with what I wanted to change. Indeed, it is never easy to make a drastic change but we can make it easier if we do it by heart and by not being too hard on ourselves. After all, it’s not how we started but how we made it to the end that matters.
A prosperous 2012 to everyone!
