TSA #7 – Improve

Jan 4, 2012 by

Happy new year everyone and thank you very much for visiting TrulySimple.  I hope you rang in the new year in style.

I think we fell asleep at 9pm.  haha.  But we did get up really early that morning.

All excuses aside, its time to think about how we do better in 2012.  It’s not too late to make resolutions.  In fact its never too late.  The thing I don’t like about new years resolutions is that everyone makes them on January 1st and they are done trying by March 1st.  Just look at the crowds at the gym to verify this trend.

Resolutions are simply just efforts to improve, and that is awesome.  We should be making these every year, month, week, day etc.  There should be a constant strive to be just a little bit better.   That is why it is not too late to make some resolutions.  It’s never too late.

I’m still working on mine.  One of them is to make resolutions all year long and be constantly trying to improve.  Part of that will be via the Truly Simple Actions I do each week and some will just be personal goals for myself.

So this weeks Truly Simple Action for you is to improve.  Make resolutions.  Make some decisions to change and improve some areas of your life and work at them.

 

As I said I’m still working on my resolutions, but here are a few I’ve got so far:

  • Read more books instead of watching TV.
  • Stop eating in front the computer
  • Be more present when spending time with others (aka get off my computer and/or phone)
  • Take the dog on more walks
  • Finish the backyard project
  • Get working on my car project again

I’m still working on many more, but thats a good start for my list.  I hope to add to it throughout the year and hopefully cross many of them off as I accomplish them.

What are your resolutions?  Don’t have any?  Make some.

Even if its just as simple as these that I stole borrowed from krishnabrodhi on Anybeat:

  1. Try
  2. Go easy on myself if I don’t make it
  3. Try again

Share your resolutions in the comments to help inspire others
