It's that time of the year again. Everyone and their cousin will be looking for your new years resolutions. Now, although I'm always tempted to state my real ones that involve drinking and women, they probably aren't that appropriate for your Aunt. Here are a few ideas to get you started that just so happen to be things that this blog seems to think you should stop doing in your 20's.
- Stop trying to get away with work that’s “good enough.”
- Stop being stingy.
- Stop approaching adverse situations with anger and frustration
- Stop Being Afraid, and Start Living Life
Okay, so obviously these are pretty generic but they certainly have some potential to help you out in the real world. I'll admit, although it is much more gratifying to rip some asshole's throat out over the phone, it is probably easier to take a more moderate approach towards the situation. I think it is also important to realize that stop being stingy relates to spending money on things you care about and not just buying frivolous crap to say you have it. Experiences, which many people on here always talk about spending your money on, are really priceless.
The last one is something that is particularly dear to me and something I've noticed more and more on these forums as a philosophy people should embrace. Stop fearing things and just go out and do them. Girlfriend dumping you for a more prestigious dude?You're now free to date hotter ones. Passed over for a promotion? Work harder or start something yourself. Anyway, maybe my resolution is to worry less about the downside and focus on the upsides.
If you guys are even reading at this point, what are some of your resolutions or thoughts heading into the new year?
