Your New Year's Resolution : Simplify.

Well its an end to another year and time for flashback. Having a look at things that you did throughout the year and looking ahead towards a new year with fresh determination, plans and possibilities is not only a fruitful undertaking for your career and professional life but in spiritual life too, Swadhyay or self-introspection is given high prominence.
So time to look back at our own lives. Which of our habits pulled our confidence and energy down. Which of them was life enhancing and life supportive. How much did we do for others and how much knowledge we've gained in our professional sphere? Take time out to do some serious thinking (not too long though - 5 to 15 mins will suffice). If possible write down the thought process as bullet points. I have done this and believe me, it makes things so much more clearer in our heads.

Talking about new year, one thing which most of us do is make resolutions. And lets not fool ourselves by telling that at the back of our minds we don't know with varying probabilities that most of them will remain just that - A resolution. Do you want to repeat that this new year too?

          Garfield's Resolution ? 

I wrote this post to tell only one thing. "The courage and confidence gained by forming one habit which we want to form propels us immensely in the direction of the others." So what I'm saying is that, right now out of all the Resolutions that you have in the back of your head, select ONE that you want to really achieve and do the following steps:

1. Write it Down.
2. Quantify it  : Things like: How many hours a day ? For how many days you won't do it? etc. You should     have a clear time frame for your resolution.
3. Tell others about your ONE RESOLUTION. : When you tell it to others, the mind becomes certain of your intentions and the universe says "Tathastu (so be it)"
4.  HABITFORGE : If you use the Internet daily then there are some great tools for free that can help you. Go to and sign up. This website is a free tool that makes you form a habit by doing it continuously for 21 days. At the end of each day, it will send an email asking whether you did that thing today or not? If you do it continuously for 21 days, you are successful. If you miss someday then the clock is reset and you start from Day 1.

So this new year simplify your life by not having too many plans and sleeping over it, but have one definite quantifiable plan and work earnestly to achieve it. The joy of taking one step towards becoming the person which you want to be and the life which you want to have is immense and fulfilling. Its worth all the trouble of taking the above steps. So SIMPLIFY and SIMPLY FLY towards your goal :)

Wishing all the readers of my Blog the Best of Life in the coming YEAR!
Happy New Year. Let me know about your ONE RESOLUTION in the comments! Cheers.
