Not a filmi post- new year resolutions 2011

I normally don't post non-filmi stuff on this blog, but I needed to write down my resolutions in a place where I can see them often. I haven't had new year resolutions before, but recent events indicate that I need to make some.


1- Don't take anything personally. And as cold as that sounds, compliments and criticisms are just that words. Getting caught up in stuff is just a deterrent to success.

2- Don't care about people that don't care about you. Because that's a waste of time, energy and emotions. Give back to people who love you.

3- Deep breathe. Be calm, firm and confident.


4- Pass 4 CPA exams. Do I each in February, April, July, August.

5- Lose 50 lbs. Lose 4 lbs every month. Walk/exercise 10 minutes daily in January, adding 5 minutes every month.

Will Shweta be able to do all this? Will 2012 see these tasks finished? What will happen?

Stay tuned in 2011!

Shweta, excellent resolutions all. Best of luck with your CPA exams!

You can do it! \o/

About #5 - I have lost ~75 pounds in the last year and 4 months. My unsolicited advice on the topic: make this goal a behavioral goal, not a numerical-weight-based goal - because sometimes bodies are stubborn about hanging on to weight in ways beyond your control. So keep your walking goal and maybe some food-related behavior goals if you have any in mind, but don't make "lose 50 pounds" your goal - focus on behaviors and results follow from that.

You can do all of it!

Good luck with your resolutions, Shweta, I'm sure you'll keep them. And a happy new year to you.

Try reading Rujuta Diwekar's books, I've found them immensely useful, practical and full of common sense. So much in tune with what Filmi Geek says.

TBF! but these are resolutions, not committments. Agar ek baar humne committment kar di to... :D
