The new year new me cliché is nothing for me. In January 2016 I set down to compose a list of things I really wanna do in 2016.
The list contains things like
- buy at least one vinyl and one book every time you leave your base town
- at least once a month plan cultural activities (this saturday it is a Vivaldi concert)
- at least two weekend city trips outside your base town (so far I ve been to Brussels, Hamburg, London and Hannover)
- at least one hiking trip (in May we are going to hike in Norway)
- at least one bike trip
- go hunting at least once a month
- write at least ten pages in my book (I have been writing a book for a couple months now)
- learn to play a rare music instrument
- read at least one book a month (currently it is Haruki Murakami 1Q84)
the list goes on and on. I want you to get a feeling for what I meant. It doesn’t have to be crazy impossible goals that you won’t be able to go for anyways and at the end just be disappointed. Make a list of realistic goals and try to reach as many as possible. When you have an actual list and not only a mass in your head then you visualize your wishes. They already become more realistic than just thoughts.
Cheers and de-rush
