New Year's Resolutions etc

Postby everything on Thu Jan 03, 2019 10:03 am

Happy New Year!

Doing any resolutions this year (or any year)?

I am starting a new job, so trying to do the whole "first 90/100 days" kind of thing to start it off right. Got a big raise vs. same time last year, but hoping to keep cutting expenses, save more money for retirement while enjoying life (as a smarter shopper/consumer).

I'm getting back into using a bullet journal, losing 40 lbs, and making more time for my personal development activities

Just the usual stuff I always try to promise myself: being less lazy, work harder, earn more money, become more brave, laugh more, be less selfish, stop acting as an arrogant prick, etc.

So far I’ve gone without a drop of caffeine/coffee for one and a half day, maybe I will try to make it into a caffeine free New Years promise
