Resolutions 2021


I know I am late for the resolutions party and I want to rationalize by saying “better a little late than too late.” 355 days is definitely a good number and so what if I haven’t announced yet, the plan of action was in go from day 1 of the year. This year, I wanted to be a little more careful while I chalk out my plan. Off-course to be more ambitious and push through limits is the Plan A.  My everyday planner has already been colorful for the first ten days and both of my Sundays, including today, have been working and the weekdays appropriately have been enough refreshing to move ahead. So, I hereby finally announce my list to keep up for the year, to make every day count, hopefully. 

A note!

By the way, I started having resolutions, in a proper format and monitoring since 2017 and it has worked for me positively.

  1. That’s a fantastic resolution. High aims to fly high. That satisfaction we have after completing all or most of it is wonderful. Though I am noob, I experienced one such satisfaction. I’ll steal some of those ideas for my short time resolutions.
    Good to do sir.

  2. WOW!!!
    WOW!!!!
    Seriously! WOW!!
    That is an amazing amount of resolutions & plans Prakash!! You go go go! If anyone can complete this plan it is YOU my friend.
    I have thought long & hard & so far my Resolutions are:
    1) Keep in touch w/ my 2nd (ex) hubby who is 300 miles away & sick with Covid. He only has 1 Brother who he is close to & no one else. Hubby is now my priority.
    2) Keep my health as stable as possible.
    3) Be more patient with myself & people.
    And that’s all I’ve got at this point…
    Good luck Prakash with your Resolutions.

  3. Now, that’s some planning. I started making resolutions only since 2019 and I have to admit, it worked out great for me. It gave me my first two published books of poetry and helped me in making my days count, however insignificant way that may be.
