|"We're going to need a bigger spreadsheet"|
In my last post I chose to only mention the 'best bits' of 2012 and let the worst bits go. It seems like a good philosophy to focus on the positives - when looking back and also when living each new day.
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine was telling me about the big list of things he was going after he retired from his main job the Friday before Christmas. The morning after his retirement, he died of a massive heart attack.
I'll say more about him next week when I can put some words together, but if nothing else, it makes you realise how precious time is, and if there are things you want to do you should be doing them now.
So my 2013 resolutions are mainly around being more focussed, better quality of life and - dare I say it? - legacy:
- Relax more (may involve yoga)
- Stop running over the same old ground
- Stop faffing about and procrastinating
- Spend more time actually writing*
- Get a collection out (poetry and or flash fiction)
- Live in the moment more
- Go somewhere on my 'go to' list
- Spend more time with people I care about
- Experiment with imaginative, innovative ideas
- Bring more smiles to the world
Have you made any resolutions or are you far too grown up for all that?
