‘New year? No plans. i will just be spontaneus..’ i hear people say now and then. Ah, i used to be like that… i think to myself. Recalling the times that i wandered aimlessly, like a nomad in the desert directionless. Reminiscing the moments, when i spinned round and around, seeing nothing but sand and more sand till 1000 miles away..regretful of why i hadn’t been little smart and packed myself one simple ‘compass’ and a piece of paper called ‘map’ before setting out for the voyage?
I am not saying it will be the same for you and ‘being Spontaneous’ is wrong. NOPE! Be Fun, Be Adventurous. That is life!! What i am insisting is, nothing wrong with having a little guide to start with..
Raised in strict time table life, i hated routine and planning. But despite loathing it with all my guts, planning got incorporated into my brain over the long run. But, it didn’t happen for ‘being on time’ and ‘actually doing it’for me. So, i got ‘habituated’ working on things only when i wanted them and on procastinating.
And ‘Procastination’ is A BAD HABIT. Got myself into lot of troubles. I tell you. Not disastrous ones though, luckily. But, letting an entire year go by, ammending for mistakes i made and preparing at last moment in hurry hoping to get best results, cost me a lot. Believe me. I wished many times, if only i had started out with some plans beforehand.
So, if you are a person who is really looking forward to change your life, be something or do something in your life. Set an objective, prepare your goals. And Get Fixed to it. . It works! I guarantee you won’t be dissatisfied.
It’s a big thing to initiate. A little anxiety ‘at first’. But getting through those keystones a step a time.. you won’t even realize when all your tasks got check boxed. And believe me” when i say again, by the end of year, you will be so proud of yourself when you throw out that old calender of yours. I can literally imagine you bloating and grinning.. like me with your double chin sprouting !!!. (ignore if you don’t have double chin… )
Simply put.. Given you had a day off and you made a rough plan, that you are going to get your laundry done, watch a movie and hangout with your friends. You will end up doing them by the end of the day. Because you know after those things are done you can rest in peace the rest of your hours. But ……if you haven’t come out with any plan, you will just end up ‘over sleeping’ on your day off. And add laundry in ‘to do’ list for God knows when. Not to mention, you will also miss out on quality time with your friends. (Gosh you are smiling on all your pictures alone..looks like a pathetic loner to me. oh..oh i see your friends here finally but none of them have teeth now.. 😉
You understood me right?
So here is the thing. Everyday in life is a new day. Never too late to start what you always wanted to do. Set your destination, plan out your routes to reach there and do it. They say ‘NOW’ is the best time.I think so too, what else can be a better time to initiate than new year..huh? 🙂
