Happy New Year!

Sure, New Year is merely a symbolic change. December 31 of 2009 and January 1 of 2010 isn't really all that different, but it sure feels like it, doesn't it? What makes new years useful? I imagine it's the thought that we get a mulligan of some sort. Call it the reset button if you wish. However much you messed up last year, this year might just be different. And it can be too! Though a mere symbolic reset won't do it. You have to reflect and introspect. See what went wrong last year. Was it procrastination that got you like it did me? Or did you try to do too much too soon? Whatever it is, the only way it can be managed is if you realize what the problem is and take the necessary step to remedy it.

This year, my only resolution is to do things better and to explore doing things differently. I think this phrase says it succinctly:

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got, so if you want something you've never had, you've got to do something you've never done.

2010 looks like an adventure to me. Hope it is for all of you too! Happy new year and prepare for the roller coaster ride that 2010 promises to be! Hiyaa!!
