Goodbye 2008 and Welcome 2009

Now it's the time to start planting the seeds. But the seeds will only grow and flourish if you have taken good care of it. Taking good care of it means you water it, weed it, provides it with good fertilizer and also good light source.

Same goes to the new year's resolution goals. Goals will just be mere wishful goals if you don't put them into writings and then formulates a plan and put them into action. In order to resolve your resolutions you have to do proper planning on what to do next and what are the steps required to fulfill your goals.

Failing to do so, you'll ended up having the same and repeating new year resolutions every year - which is called the "bring forward" goals. As the famous saying says, "By failing to prepare, you're preparing to fail", I don't want to do the same mistake again.

Everyone wants to grow, achieving something in their life and climb the ladder of success. But things won't come easy so don't expect everything will come into your life knocking on your door. When you dream of something it will only become a reality if you do your part - realizing it.

So what are my goals for this year?

Live healthy. It's easy to say live healthy but the reality to live healthy is that I have to do a lot of enjoyable hard works. Enjoyable? Yes, exercises can be a lot of fun, like playing football and futsal, I really enjoy them a lot. I have also already started hitting the gym early this year, pump some weights and runs on the treadmill like a hamster. I wanna have a nice muscle cut and stay fit. I'll also switch junk foods to fruits as my snack and cutting down my intake of alcohol.

Get to done. Eliminate procrastination and get things done. Tasks comes one after another, so it is crucial to identify which task are urgent and which are important, which task to do first and which to do later. Finish every task that has started first then proceeds to the next task. Keep multi-tasking at minimal as possible.

Simplifying. I want to get rid with all the clutters in my rooms and also in my head. I have a bad habit of leaving the cup, glass, bottle and cans on the table, especially on my computer desk. I only attend to these "left overs" when my mom starts to yap at me. I need to eliminate this bad habit as soon as possible. Clutters in my head aren't actually a problem, these clutters is which I call the "web of ideas". Rather than leaving them playing around in my head, which I'll tend to forget soon, I should put them on paper where I can remember them. So it's all about clearing - mess, desk, email inbox and phone inbox.

Pass all my papers. This coming semester I'll be studying a new course, Business (Management and International Business). I've withdrawed from engineering course because I want to pursue my dream which is to become a businessman. I've been studying engineering for 7 years (since I was 16) so getting into business course is something very new to me. But anyway I feel so excited, can't wait for the class to start!!

Take control of my personal finance. I realized that it's very important to track all the spendings and incomes that rolls in my wallet. This is the best way to realize that how the money comes and goes in your life. All these while I've been spending my money without realizing what I've spent on. Tracking my spending will also help me to develop a new skill in data collection which might be a big help for my business studies.

Watching Sarawak FC live. Being a Sarawakian, till today I never watch any of the local football team's match live in the stadium. Only watch them playing in the TV while I was still a kid!! I know, they aren't as big as the European league clubs, but if you really love football you have to support your own local football club.

Begin a journal. Aside from sharing in my blog, I should begin a journal where I can express my deepest emotions and inner thoughts within me by responding and reflecting to the experiences and events happening in my life. A place where I can explore not only my thoughts and emotions but also my experiences.

But there is one simple thing that I should remind you, remain flexible. Unexpected obstacles may come through our voyage, so expect changes on your plan or maybe even your goal. Don't limit yourself and let opportunity pass because of your inflexibility. Remain flexible, focus on your goal until you reach your destination.

Now go ahead and pursue your dream and achieve goals but most importantly enjoy the journey!!

"Do lak mebaruh!!"
