Today I was working on goals for the New Year, I listed, at least, two goals under the categories: Financial, Family, Spiritual, Mental, Physical and Philanthropical. As I was thinking these through, I was already creating obstacles or excuses for myself. This got me thinking, why not create some commandments for the New Year. Rules that I can not break.
Thou shall NOT purchase another WordPress theme for my personal sites. Over the winter, I purchased the Genesis theme and some child themes (not yet launched) and I’m happy with them. I have a LONG history of purchasing themes just to try a new design or functionality, which brings me to…
Thou shall NOT redesign my WordPress sites, on a whim, especially not after midnight.
Thou shall NOT cancel a workout simply because I’m not in the mood.
Thou shall NOT purchase another camera lens until I’ve mastered the ones I have. I may have to wait on the Tamron 85mm 1.4 if it is truly coming out, which breaks my heart a little bit.
Thou shall NOT fret or criticize, judge, fret, talk down upon selfie photos or any portraits of myself.
Though shall NOT not talk myself out of doing something that is out of my comfort zone.
Though shall NOT complain about the past, its all about living in the NOW and the future.
Though shall NOT let work consume my life this year. Life first, work second.
Though shall NOT let negative thoughts take over. I shall focus on my goals, my words and happiness.
There you have it my 10 Commandments posted on the interwebs which is just as good as carving them in stone right?
Do you have some things you want to stop doing this year?
