A week and a half ago we went from 2013 to 2014. We’re already 2.7% of the way through the year. And I have done nothing whatsoever in that time.
The New Year is a time to reflect upon what happened in the previous year and set yourself goals for 2014. You should take this extremely seriously and view January as a time of constructive change.
Google “new year’s resolutions” and you’ll get a whole lot of lists of things you should commit to in 2014. I have two major problems with this.
Firstly, you do not need to wait for the stroke of midnight on 31 December to make changes to your life.
Secondly, I know New Year’s Eve parties are often disappointing, but do you know what you should not be doing at midnight on New Year’s Eve? Thinking about what you’ve been doing wrong for the last year.
So I hope that at midnight on New Year’s Eve you were dancing crazily to old music and loving the world. If not… well, there’s a ready made resolution for 2014. 355 days from now, you will spend the night enjoying yourself.
Even if you have work.
