â€œJon, what is your new years resolution? Give up moreâ€¦â€¦.â€
Question of Â 2014 for sure:
Â â€œJon, what is your new years resolution?â€
â€œGive up moreâ€¦â€¦.â€ Â (Iâ€™ll elaborate.)
New year resolutions are great for temporary morale, but this year I am doing things differently. New year resolutions seem to be something people add on to their existing routine or responsibilities. To be honest I have so many exciting things going on in 2014 I canâ€™t possibly manage more without lowering the quality of my existing goals.
Instead, I decided to let go of older baggage, and things that just slowed me down in 2013. Â Whether is was toxic people in my life, inefficiency at work and other daily stresses that are completely avoidable (ex check my mobile/email every 5 mins)I want to give up old habits, responsibilites, to make room for the existing goals I already have. so for those of you still making resolutions I challenge you to try giving up something to make more room for you existing plans.
So what am I giving up:
I’m giving up push notifications on any work related app (desktop or mobile)
I’m giving up excuses that cause me to say â€œNoâ€. Â (Just answer people with â€œNoâ€)
What are you giving up?
Happy New Year!
