2010 resolutions, in two takes

TAKE ONE

This year I resolve to…

Wake up earlier and go to bed earlier.

To get more sleep and always eat a proper breakfast and bring my lunch to work daily and rush less on my way to work and on my way home and everywhere in between.

To exercise more, practice yoga more and to meditate daily and to eat more fiber and green leafy vegetables.

To spend more time with family and friends, and also to build stronger relationships at work and for work.

To be on time for every meeting and also be open to spontaneous, creative, and urgent conversations.

To be slow to judgment, to anger and to frustration, and quick with a smile and a kind word.

To read all the interesting articles and videos and blog posts people send my way, and also the The Economist from cover to cover, and never to fall behind on email but not to be ruled by my Inbox or distracted by my iPhone.

To hit every deadline, strike everything off my to do list, to plan in advance and create clarity and inspiration and connection for those around me.

And to create a 30 hour day…

(Hmmm.)

TAKE TWO

This year I resolve to be more accepting of myself and of others, to be more present, more calm, more generous, more open, and more at ease.

My thanks to all of you for reading in 2009, and wishing you a year in which you continue to evolve into the person you were meant to be.

  2. I love the first list, and it echoes many of my own aspirations. Self acceptance and serenity may be the toughest aspiration of all. But I’ll be cheering for you all the way. ; )
