My New Year Resolutions for 2009

I am an optimistic person when it comes to New Year resolutions. Surprisingly, I do tend to keep most of them too… I truly want to make a difference to my life this year and I really want 2009 to be different.

Here are my 10 resolutions that I plan to keep:

The Blog: It’s gone on for too long now. I REALLY need to move over to WordPress (WP). I love you Blogger but if I have to have functionality and a blog design that I truly like – without making compromises, WP is the way to go.

Get back in shape: I had a six pack only 3 years ago… what happened all of a sudden? Get back in shape… like seriously. Go to gym, RELIGIOUSLY. And before you ask, No! I have not been inspired by any of the Khans.

Write Regularly: To take this blog to bigger scene I need to write more often and make more insightful posts. That means more research and more time reading stuff on Social Media, whilst keeping the pagalpan going. I like doing it… it’s time to make I take it to the next level.

Stop Procrastinating: There are times when I have just not done things… let them pass and not made an effort to put in my bestest best. This attitude shall pass. I want 2009 to be the best year of my life and that means ‘lazy’ goes out of the window.

Stop being Uncle Scrooge: Yes… you know this one… I judge people all the time. I want to give them a chance this time. I want to be more forgiving and accept people for what they are.

Work Harder: That’s right. I love my job – I say this after being in Pinstorm for four months and I truly love it here – now make it count. Be impressive and not mediocre. Make suggestions, start things, see them through and K.O.

Super Secret Project: Get down to executing that Super Secret Project that I have been sleep walking on… it’s been in the pipeline for too long. I have spoken to the stakeholders, made mental notes of the meetings, the timings, the people involved, venue, everything. GET THE BALL ROLLING!

Get a Life: Stop brooding over things, stop being a potato and get out there. Accept every party invite you get. Go out there and meet new people. Find the love of your life… and this time, find someone who will love you back. About time… sheesh! L

Write Poetry: So I was cocky when I was 16 and when I was 17, 18… Not to mention 19 and 20… Thought I could write poetry whenever I wanted. Lost a 300 page book full of original poems too… Now is the time to re-make it. Write a poem, not because it’s cool but because it was always fun to!

Re-learn Marathi: So I un-learnt Marathi and learnt Kannada when I shifted to Bangalore. Time to re-learn what I forgot, eh?

So there… here is wishing you a very happy new year Mr. Asfaq Tapia. May this year be the bestest year of your life 🙂
