New Year’s Resolutions

January 10, 2011

The advent of the new year inadvertently forces us to make an evaluation of the past year and focus on the things we want to change. Most people then go on and make their new year’s resolutions, which almost always include a clause for eating healthier (considering the abuse they have found themselves in in the run-up to Christmas). I was also one of them. If you check my previous posts carefully, you will see that I made at least one new year’s resolution in 2009: to write more.

But, nowadays, I do not believe in making new year’s resolutions any more. After the dust of the holidays has settled and the post-Christmas shortage of cash has been straightened, I look forward to February, and not January, to make plans for the new year. Because I believe that February is the best time to make rational decisions on embarking on new projects, without carrying the guilt of the previous year and without having the January blues. Most importantly, I will make decisions that will not be forgotten in a very short time.

And that is what I am going to do this year. I will wait patiently for January to pass, and I will start planning my new year in February. Some people might say it is too late, but I think it is really worth the wait.
