I got home just after midnight from a very busy, long day at work, my eyes tired and my mind exhausted. This had been going on since the past week. All these busy days have taken a big chunk of my time and I haven’t been able to connect with family and friends.
This is not a rant. I’m just saying that what I’m going through recently has made me feel quite down.
As I checked my Facebook news feed before going to bed, I came across this post by George Takei and somehow my spirits were lifted. It’s so awesome I just had to share it with you right away:
We are all creatures of habit. The things we do constantly day by day will determine the results of the future.
The question is, are your habits helping you achieve your goals faster or are they slowing you down?
Some people say it takes 21 days to form a habit. Others say it takes 30 days. While others say it takes a lot longer than that. Well, I think there are no hard and fast rules.
The key is to do these 4 simple steps:
I can’t believe how fast time flies indeed. In just a few hours, 2010 is going to be over and we’ll be welcoming 2011 with a bang! As I reflect on the events that occurred, I would say that, overall, the year 2010 was a great year for me.
It was a year of learning, taking control of my life and moving forward. It was a time of growth and self-improvement. And I am glad to say that I am happy with the way I have handled several challenges this year.
With that said, I would like to share with you 10 of my accomplishments in 2010:
Will you survive the economic winter?
As I walked through the streets of Tokyo tonight, I saw that most of the leaves on the trees on the sidewalks have fallen to the ground. It’s getting a lot colder these days.
Goodbye autumn. Hello winter.
Time sure goes by so fast. It’s been more than two years since the Lehman Shock hit the globe.
Since then, the economy has been crawling. It’s been a slow and painful process. Despite all the stimulus packages the government gives out, people aren’t spending as much.
How do you perceive your world?
I noticed how more and more movies are coming out in digital 3D these days. Watching them in 3D makes me feel like I’m “inside” the the movie. The images just pop out of the screen and it just seems so real. That’s an amazing thing about how we see things.
People look at things from their own perspective.
In almost any aspect of life, how we perceive things defines our reality. There’s always more than one way of looking at any experience. How do you perceive your experiences?
Do you find opportunity in every difficulty? Or do you find difficulty in every opportunity?
Yes, I admit that I’ve had my share of crappy moments in my life. I didn’t realize it then, but I was actually attracting all that crap! Unbelievable! But then I found out about a way to turn things around…
There used to be a time when nothing seemed to go my way. Everything I did didn’t seem to work.
