2015 #New #Year #Resolutions - a Neat Trap

If you are at the end of something, you are at the beginning of something else.
Making resolutions for the new year is a flawless and a neat trap- you know you are going to break most of them, and feel terrible about it for the rest of the year... but still everyone is tempted to create some new year resolutions. This is what happens with resolutions:

Instead, I suggest you make a wish list. It is like a buffet spread-you can eat all or eat nothing-it depends on how hungry you are.

I have made a wish list. Which can provide the required magic to my life. It is like a beautiful buffet spread on a Sunday afternoon.

Starters: (pick any 2)
1.    I will get up early (you can accomplish 30 % more during 5 am to 10 am)
2.    I will exercise at least for 30 minutes 4 times a week (you have no choice on this)
3.    I will meditate /prey/ visualize positive things/do yoga for 30 minutes every day.

Main course (pick any 6)
1.    As soon as I step out of my door in the morning, I will behave as if I am on national television. My behavior will be impeccable.
2.    I will invest in best clothes I can afford-along with good shoes (It has been proved, that better dressed people earn 15 % more-all things being equal)
3.    At work, I shall do only things, which will increase my sales or reduce my costs. (Whatever you focus on-expands!)
4.    Will outsource everything, which is not my core competence. (Won’t waste time on improving my weakness)
5.    Will reduce my mobile bills by 30 %. (Mobile phones are the biggest time waster in corporate India)
6.    Will contact 3 customers every month, who have stopped doing business with me. (It is three times easier to convert old customers, than acquiring new once)
7.    Will personally talk to 20 % of my top customers every month. (They run my kitchen and will contribute 80 % to my sales)
8.    ( For Managers ) I will not call my employees on weekends or when they are on vacations. (They will respect me for that)
9.    I will at least take one risky decision, which I was always scared to take. (I don’t want to die of boredom-do you?)
10.    I will train my brain to think creatively every day. I will do different things to exercise my brain muscles- try new style & color of clothes; go to new restaurants, visit zoo; listen to different music; visit toy shop to observe children buying toys, be nice to my mother-in-law.
11.    I will do five things everyday, which will take me closer to my goals. (Make this as my screen saver)
12.    I will not forget to market myself every day.

Desert (pick all)
1.    I will take 2 vacations in a year.
2.    I will devote at least one day (Sunday) for family only. No business calls, no laptops. Does not matter, how big my business/position is.
3.    I will smile at everyone I meet. (Even to the lift man)
4.    I will hug my spouse everyday in multiples of three.
5.    I will watch one movie in a cinema hall every month (it is therapy for the soul)
6.    I will read at least 2 books in a year.
7.    I will do one thing, which I was always fearful about.
8.    I will call two old friends, whom I have not spoken for years.
9.    I will do one thing, which makes me truly happy. Does not matter if my wife or children get mad at me.
10.    I have got only 52 weekends. I will not let anybody spoil them.

Let this year be the best year of your life.
Let the force be with you! To an amazing New Year! ...cheers
