New Year’s Resolutions for the Jetsetter
“What’s your resolution this year?” One might wonder and fed up with that cliché silly question. The years come and go, often without the slightest notice, only our aging body and wrinkling skin to charactirize that we are, afterall, still bounded by time—even a jetsetter couldn’t be able to deny that.
However, the changing year would mean something positive: new beginning, new chance, it starts all over again. Although in believing it as something new would make you a disillusioned person, there’s nothing wrong with listing new hopes. But one might wonder, as a jetsetter, when you have everything in your hand, what else that you could possibly want?
The answer is, a lot. There’s some point you could take into mind.
Resolution #1: Spend more time with your family.
As a busy person, you often neglect the person who needs your attention the most and give it to your work instead. This year, it’s time to show them that you actually care.
Resolution #2: Reconnect the dots between old friends.
Remember those besties in your junior high? Or those friends you only meet on Twitter? Why don’t you pay an actual visit, just for the old time’s sake? Maybe you can learn something.
Resolution #3: Make our world a better place.
Wow this is ambitious. It’s not about making your own world more convenience for you, but for other people! Can you make it?
Resolution #4: Turn the bucket list and fill it with not-to-do list.
Your time is a treasure to be invested. Creating a list of things that you are not going to do, allows you to invest more of your treasured time on the few things that matter the most.
Resolution #5: Nap and Meditate.
Stressed out should be a breakfast for your people. Instead of cultivating happiness through dangerous and illegal act, why don’t you take something simple: taking naps?
Resolution #6: Say yes to anything new.
Remember the movie “Yes Man” with Jim Carrie? If you haven’t got the chance to see the film, try to get the hand of it, watch it and think. If you have watched it, you DO know what exatcly i’m talking about.
Resolution #7: Hope for everything before you can’t hope for anything.
Who says we’re gonna live forever? Time is short, so go out there and dig your deepest desire and make it happen before you can’t.
Resolution #8: Write more.
One thing that needs more time to think than other mundane works is writing. It left something immortal to your mortal body, essentially. Starts with your daily or casual blog and fill it with whatever comes to your mind. You are what you write.
Resolution #9: Resolve to invent more choices
Here’s a secret that happy people know: You can’t feel grateful and fearful at the same time. And one certain way to become afraid is to feel trapped by any situation. The remedy is choice. The more choices you feel you have, the less trapped—and happier—you will feel.
Resolution #10. Plan your travel NOW
The world is too big for you to just sit on your desk. Time to see the different wall now.
