The New Year

It's been a long time since my last blog post. This year has been really hectic and I really thank God for giving me strength to overcome the obstacles. When I reflect and look back, I could never have got through this year alone :) A brief run through for this year-I have met new friends, learnt to work with different people, and learnt to be a more objective person.  As this year draws to a close in less than 2 weeks, it is time to bid farewell to 2010 and welcome the year 2011.

Usually, at this time of the year, many of us would be busy drawing up resolutions and plans for the new year. I believe this is a good practice as it helps us to set an aim and direction for our life. However, it is undeniably easy to make a plan but to really implement it is another story :) We start off being enthusiastic in the beginning but other things can crop up and hinder us from achieving our goals. This sometimes causes people to be discouraged and lose hope in their resolutions. In my humble opinion, here are some tips which may be useful:

1. Be practical
When setting a goal, bear in mind it is something we are aiming to achieve. Hence, set a realistic target instead of a goal that may look good but is actually really hard to achieve in one year.

2. Don't push yourself too hard
Life is unpredictable at times as unexpected issues may be a setback to what we have planned to do. In fact, failing to achieve one of the resolutions on your list doesn't mean the plan has failed. For example, if you face a difficult situation and are able to stay calm, you may have achieved one of your resolutions which is to stay positive and objective. With this, it is easier to move on and continue to carry on with life. Don't kick yourself when a resolution doesn't turn out, focus on the rest which are attainable.

3. Be flexible
In this ever changing environment, things can turn around 360 degrees in a short time. Plans may need to be totally changed, so our resolutions would be affected as well. Be prepared to adapt and let your resolutions flow in nicely according to the circumstances. For instance, if you've switched to a new workplace somewhere during the year, you might have new resolutions like to fit in with a new working environment and get on well with new colleagues.

I wish everyone Merry Christmas and have a great new year ahead!
