I have never been one to make New Year’s resolutions. I figure if there were changes I needed to make, I would want to start making them right then and there, and not give myself any diluted Fat Tuesday excuses to perpetuate poor habits. It all sounds like a set up for good intentions to fizzle out.
Sometime around mid – late December I just had enough of where I was at and the direction I was going, so I drafted a “determination list” – things that I don’t just want or hope for, things I am determined to do and see through. I do have more needs, but I figure if I can touch on these core issues, the rest will naturally fall into place.
DETERMINATION LIST 2009
I AM DETERMINED TO:
Successfully start and run an education philanthropy organization and foundation
Freelance write [for profit]
Be more creative
Start [and don’t stop] attending school
Wake up early every day
Exercise at least three times a week
To thine own self be true
