My advice – no resolutions this year.

The New Year. How many times have you asked yourself – what am I going to achieve this year, what my plans and resolutions are?

My plan this year:


Only dreams to realise in time – the best, most waited for ones. Rather a do-it-now plan for the things you wanted to do most. If you do that, everything else will fall into place. Planning and goal-setting is good, but it all comes down to what you are doing NOW. So, no television (unless this is your goal :), no other distractions. Focus on what you want the most and it will come to you (but keep working on it too, it helps ;).

Moreover, something about taking things for granted. There is nothing more saddening than not appreciating a thing while it lasts, and then regret and wishing it came back after it’s gone. Many years from now you will regret the things you didn’t do, the unread books, the people around you that you didn’t appreciate or even notice… By any means, cherish what you have this year, because you can never be sure how long it will last. That simple truth has made me a lot more aware of what’s happening around me. I sincerely recommend it.

If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint’, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

- Vincent van Gogh
