The year 2017 sure went fast!
I have vivid memories of writing the resolution for the year 2017 last year. The year 2017 was both important and meaningful year for me. I have completed most of the resolution items listed on the resolution list and I am extremely happy with how I spent and finished the year 2017.
In the past year, I obviously couldn’t write blog posts every single Saturdays due to other schedules but I tried to write a post at least once a week. Also, I managed to develop many more Java algorithms. I am hoping to increase algorithms for other languages as well this year. Going to the gym have always been my main theme. I have gone to the gym at least 5-6 days a week consistently.
As for stylish dressing, I tried (and tried) to be stylish but I ended up with black/white t-shirt with the jean (almost every day). I feel like this style is the simplest yet the most glamorous (#seriously).
For reading books, I have managed to read at least 5 technological books. By reading them, I feel like I have not only educated myself in technological aspects but also my reading/comprehension skills developed in general. I had chances to reflect my thoughts against the author’s thoughts and make any improvements myself if necessary.
Lastly, being a better listener is much harder than it sounds. I literally have to listen in to other person’s whole sentences and agree/disagree with gentleness and kindness. I have tried to tune into other people but I sure have a long way to go until I become a better listener because I am still interrupting others too much during the conversation. The conversation eventually becomes an argument. I need to be able to perceive other people’s thoughts in a humble manner.
Let me set these resolutions for the year 2018 which I will review again next year.
As always, this one stays on top of the list.
Going to the gym is a definite necessity to live a healthier life, but it is just another ingredient to a healthier lifestyle. In order to have a healthy lifestyle, I find following items more important than just exercising all day.
As I am concentrating too much on my side of things, I am easily neglecting to build a good relationship with people. At the very least, I should send them a message once in a while to see how they are doing. Especially, I should spend more time with my family. I should check out on my immediate families (including my mother, father, and sister) to check on their status at least once a week.
This would be an excellent start to a day by practicing it every morning. I can organize and review what my day will look like every day. Also, I am hoping this meditation would help me remaining calm without too many difficulties.
