with a new year always comes the expected sets of resolutions that results in a new year to-do list. and if you are a list maker like myself, those to-do lists sometimes look scary and become a complex entity that will later down the line implement some sort of guilt or a sense of lack of accomplishment.
so why not give yourself an alternative? another way to possibly help gear up the new year with a different sort of promise to yourself. aka: this year i will NOT... meaning a not-to-do list.
so to start off, here is mine:
i will NOT:
- over commit and over extend myself
- increase my carbon footprint by NOT going for "drives" to clear my head, by turning the lights when i leave the room and other ways to cut back on my daily consumption
- worry about where i will be in 5, 10 years and project some sort of extended life plan
- spend money needlessly.
i'm sure there are many other things i ought not to do but those are what comes to mind right this second. so let's see what YOU got!
