What to expect in 2016 for me…

First post of 2016. Things had started off pretty chilled, but I have a feeling that this year will bring about a change for the better. (Just a feeling).

2015 for me went by so fast. I put so much focus on my work. In this year, I learnt so much, but if I honestly reflected back, it was mostly just work. All work and no play makes a pretty dull year. Something I hope to change this year I think. Technically speaking, I’m doing pretty well at the workplace, but sometimes I still feel it just isn’t enough. I feel like I can actually do more. A couple of nights ago, I thought back and reflected on where I am right now. It’s strange though. I am in a pretty comfortable state, but I wasn’t content. I asked myself, what am I actually doing? I must be going wrong somewhere, why else am I still not content? I achieved most of my NYR last year which was better than most of the previous years. And still I think there are still plenty room for improvement.

I think one of the things I am going to work on this year to to try and get involved in more activities and hopefully meet more new people and possibly new friends. I’m finding it’s much harder to make honest friends nowadays. I think as people get older, they get much lazier. I feel the same way actually.  Meeting new people and building a proper relationship actually takes effort. So much work for something that might not be long-term is kinda a waste of time. But really, I’m not doing anything much with it other than spending it on work anyways. So whats the harm.

One thing I need to work on though is to keep at it. That laziness seeps in too easily. Argh! Definitely need to keep it at bay. It’s the bane of my own self-improvement. So I decided, this will be something I will work on this year, and hopefully my efforts will pay off.

Wish me luck.

Thanks,

  1. I think being dissatisfied with the status quo is fuel for improvement – there’s a time for being content and taking stock of what you currently have and appreciating that – but there is also a time to look beyond that. I’m sure you know which stage you are at, at the moment, so keep pushing and be aware of opportunities that can help you become better than who you are 🙂

    I’ve found Tim Ferriss’ podcast to be decent entertainment on top of being a source of motivational thought – if listening to podcasts doesn’t annoy you, give it a try dude
