New Year's Resolutions 2019

Thursday, January 10, 2019

My theme for 2019 is to work smarter, not harder.  By nature, I am the laziest little couch potato you ever did see. My entire life I've tried to change that, but this year I'm embracing it and instead using that "weakness" as a strength.

In December, I read a quote that I couldn't quite find the author to (it's been attributed to Bill Gates, but I saw it debunked): "I will always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it."  It's the truth.  I'll always look for the easier route first.  I'll find the mechanics to a thing and I'll turn it into a well-oiled machine.  So this year, that's my focus - to lean into what I'm good at, even if it's not conventional.

Swim once a week.
I'm paying for the damn pool in my building, I should be using it.

No potato chips.
This was forced suggested by Ricky because he was tired of coming home to no chips.  Selfish and rude. Also, I did this in 2011 and it lasted until 2013.  It saved me a lot of money because I spend a looooooot of money on chips.

Read 1 book a week, 52 books total for the year.
If I go over that number, I won't be mad.

Not staying up late mindlessly scrolling on social media.
I fell short of this once or twice but I'm getting back up on that horse!

Follow my dreams by not listening to those who doubt them even if I'm crashing and burning.
I've always wanted to be a writer, but if I'm not writing then I definitely can't call myself a writer.  This year, I'm already at peace with the idea my writing will never see the light of day, but if it feeds my soul, I'm swinging for the fences!

Welp, here's to a New Year!
