2020 has arrived, and with it comes a time to take stock of the past year and prepare to achieve your goals, recharge, and refocus.
I am again going to post “Resolutions for 1920”, which appeared in the December 29, 1919 issue of Forbes. I chose 17 of my favorite resolutions since they are so timeless and pertinent to our lives today!
To strive to contribute something to the world, its work, and the people in it.
To bestir myself more energetically to achieve, and to fret less about reward.
To adhere, the best I can, to the Golden Rule, both in business and in social life.
To be more considerate of others.
To be a good team worker.
To commend more and condemn less.
To form a more definitive, clear- cut purpose in life.
To exercise more self-control, more self-reliance, more unselfishness.
To look up at the heavens oftener.
To find joy in the out-of-doors.
To take a longer-range view of life and living.
To recognize how much I really have.
To talk less and do more.
To try always to see other viewpoints than my own.
To have faith in myself and never for a moment, doubt my ability to do the thing I want to do.
To not be discouraged by past failures.
To bestow more thought on my duties of citizenship.
