Unresolutions 2015


2015 the best is yet to come. I look back at the 2013 and 2014 resolutions and see that I struggle with full year commitments. So let’s take a different approach. I am going to try, “Unresolutions.”

What are unresolutions? Well set the resolution in a different mindset. Call it reverse psychology. Call it devil’s advocacy. Call it whatever you like.

Here is my list of 2015 New Year’s Unresolutions. And my song of the year.

1) A bad habit I’m going to break: Eat 2 hours before bedtime.

2) A new skill I’d like to learn: Become fluent in Spanish or French again.

3) A person I hope to be more like: Evolve to be more like by two best friends Ra and Ro.

4) A good deed I’m going to do: Donate 1% of my salary to a nonprofit or charity.

5) A place I’d like to visit: Travel to India.

6) A book I’d like to read: Read “War and Peace.”

7) A letter I’m going to write: Draft and send my letter of amends.

8) A new food I’d like to try: Cook 10 new dishes.

9) I’m going to do better at: Living and loving for the moment.

10) An experience I’d like to have: Watch every film that has won best picture.
