Well, the new year is upon us and I believe there are some questions that bare asking.
The first question you should ask yourself: Where am I going? This should be about the goals you have set for yourself, and how you plan on meeting these goals. I am not talking about that corny New Year’s resolution. I mean the serious goals. If you are completely happy with the place you are in, and feel there is no need for improvement. Then by all means skip this one. That would beg the question from me: Are you really happy, or just too apathetic to make the changes necessary?
The second question you should ask yourself: How did I get here? Obviously this is not about your creation. If you are going to re-invent yourself. (question 1). You need to know where you have been. Know the path you took, if it was the right one. Did you take some short-cuts along the way. If you veered off the right path, you need to look back and figure out when that was. Definitely know the mistakes you have made, and how to avoid, actually correct, them.
The third and probably the most important question you need to ask yourself: How serious am I? You can spend all day, all week maybe even a month on questions 1 and 2. It will do you no good if you are not serious about making the proper changes. Take it from a professional procrastinator. I am on the right path, it is however, a path I should have traveled down long ago. I should be finished with this path and on to the main road by now. If I had gone through with every whim I have started. I would be the greatest writer of fiction and non-fiction novels. Also I would be the one in the best of shape. My radio show would be the most popular of all the talk shows. Oh yeah, I would also be fluent in Italian, Spanish and A.S.L. (American sign language).
In conclusion: as the old adage goes…never put off ’til tomorrow what you can do today. Pretty soon, tomorrow becomes yesterday, and yesterday is too late to get anything accomplished.
