In about less than a day, we will welcome 2009.
In a way, we all look forward to the new year as it represents a clean slate to start the new year. Looking back on 2008, it had been both good and bad.
Besides looking at the year retrospectively, we also look to what we can achieve in 2009. So, not sure if everyone dreads making resolutions but after much thought, its not so much of resolutions alone but it's a combination of both resolutions and goals to achieve.
Dictionary.com's definition of resolution is "the act of resolving or determining upon an action or course of action, method, procedure, etc." Hence, to put forth a resolution is the very act of taking action towards achieving a set goal.
In the last few days of 2008, I will be putting some thoughts down for my goals in 2009. Most likely I'll still be continuing some goals from 2008 though, kekekeke...
Meanwhile, what else will you be doing on New Year's Eve... aside from the mandatory eating and drinking activities?
