It is coming to another end of the year. A glorious year of 2010 indeed. We have seen the economic market on its highs and lows. It has improved over the long year and the economic growth has been stable so far. Amongst the much anticipated New Year ahead, many of us started out with 2010 with many New Year resolutions.
The year is about to end. How many have you kept? And how many have you forgotten? Here are 5 questions which might spark your mind for the next year.
1. Did you record your 2010 New Year Resolutions?
Did you list down your new year resolutions this year? If you did, do you still have a record of it? If you didnt or dont it might be a good time to start thinking about recording your 2011 resolutions and start writing them down and placing them on a place where you see it every day. Hearing is an illusion, and seeing is believing.
2. Did you take steps in 2010 towards your New Year Resolutions?
Did you take steps, small or big strides, towards your resolutions this year? Did you develop new skills, new programs, and new schedules to work upon your resolutions? If you did, great. Think of ways to further improve them next year. If you didnt it might be a good time to re-evaluate your schedule and time for 2011.
3. If you took steps, did you stick with it?
Steps taken, big or small are still steps and experienced gained. Did you stick to it? If you did, great on you. If you didnt think as to why and what caused you to stop. If you had continued what you had started for a whole 356 days since the beginning of 2010, where would you have been at the end of 2010? Time does not wait for anyone.
4. Did you attain your 2010 resolutions?
Did you reach your goals for 2010? Did you successfully allocate enough time and effort to use all means to achieve your 2010 goals? If you did, great on you. Continue to put in effort to continue with your brand new skill or good habit which you have honed for 2010 into 2011. If you didnt its time to re-evaluate and rethink your strategies to meet your resolution next year. It is time to focus on what is important, do what works and leave what doesnt work in the trash in 2011.
5. How many days does an average human live?
Is it million days? Hundreds of thousands? Tens of thousands? Or thousands?
The answer, an average human only lives for 28,000 days. Of these 28,000 days, roughly 7200 days is used for the growth from being a child into a young adult. How many more days are you going to waste not changing anything and achieving nothing? Time is each of our most important assets. A second lost cannot be recovered. Each and every second counts. And how are you going to spend your 20,000 days left as an adult will affect the next 60 years of your life. Are you going to spend the next few new year, both start and end, regretting what you have lost cannot be recovered? No, time does not wait for anyone. If you made mistakes, it is time to get up and get going. Life continues on, whether you like it or not. A person who is unable to get back up on their feet will be destroyed through time.
If there is one important fact which you can receive back form this article, it is this important line.
An average human only lives for 28,000 days
