I’m not usually one to make New Year’s Resolutions, but it’s been a rough 2014, and what better chance to reset than a new year?
Yes, it’s almost May, but I’d decided since January that my ultimate goal for the new year will be to follow the mantra, “Stop, Reset, Continue”.
Stop: Disconnect — It’s become too easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of the day to day, become complacent with the present, and forget that the change should be the only constant we’ll ever know.
As a reminder to myself to stop, one of my resolutions for 2015 is to read one book every two weeks. — Reading has always been synonymous to learning for me, and to continue my learning will hopefully mean to continue to change, to challenge myself.
Reset: Or reflect. Whichever one is more fitting at the moment.
What’s that quote?
You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.
I want to remind myself that it’s okay to start over. With that said, it’s still important to be intentional about every decision I make — whether it’s a career change, or when I wake up in the morning. Hence, reflect, maybe reset, and…
Continue: As a kid, I was a huge fan of ‘It’s going to be okay in the end, and if it’s not okay, then it’s not the end’. There have been so many instances where I’d be going through something I’d think I’d never be able to move past, and yet here I am. Moved past.
Half the battle is taking the first step, and I think by really sticking to my ‘Stop, Reset, Continue’ mantra this year, I’ll go on to do some pretty cool things.
How have you guys been doing with your New Year’s Resolutions?
