Handbook for 2010

by World Wide Ed on Monday, January 11, 2010

I know, I know… This ain’t the “Photography at the Right Angle” caption contest we’re supposed to have for the next 20+ Mondays (LOL!), but I thought this was important enough to try and get out in the beginning of the year. Yeah, yeah, it’s already the 11th day into the new year… So sorry yeah!? Bettah late than nevah right? 8) Anyway, go checkum go, and I’ll meetcha at the bottom.

Handbook for 2010:

HEALTH:
01. Drink plenty of water.
02. Eat breakfast like a king/queen, lunch like a prince/princess & dinner like a beggar.
03. Live with the 3 E’s – Energy, Enthusiasm & Empathy.
04. Make time to meditate.
05. Play more games.
06. Read more books than you did in 2009.
07. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
08. Sleep for 7 hours.
09. Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

PERSONALITY:
10. Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
11. Don’t take yourself so serious. No one else does.
12. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip
13. Dream more while you are awake.
14. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
15. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
16. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
17. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
18. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
19. Smile & laugh more.
20. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

SOCIETY:
21. Call your family often.
22. Each day give something good to others.
23. Forgive everyone for everything.
24. Spend more time w/people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
25. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
26. What other people think of you is none of your business.

LIFE:
27. Do the right thing!
28. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
29. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & show up.
30. The best is yet to come.

Talk to me!
* Which is your favorite one?
* Which is one you’d like to work on the most this year?
* Did you make any resolutions of your own this year? Share, share!

Here’s mine:

* Which is your favorite one?
I have a few: Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip (#12), Dream more while you are awake (#13), and What other people think of you is none of your business (#26). I think gossip is such a waste of energy. Dream while you are awake is a good one! And for #26, just be yourself. Who cares what other people think.

* Which is one you’d like to work on the most this year?
“Eat breakfast like a king/queen, lunch like a prince/princess & dinner like a beggar” (#2). I always tell myself to eat breakfast (cause I always hear that it’s the most important meal of the day), but never seem to be able to stick to it. I do want to eat a smaller dinner too. The “Read more books than you did in 2009 (#6)” one is pretty funny too cause that would be duck soup for me. I just have to read one! 😉

* Did you make any resolutions of your own this year? Share, share!
I’m getting a little soft in certain areas, so I wanna start getting back into shape. Joined a “body fat” losing competition with my friends, so it’s soooo on! I want my “Team Jacob” abs back! 8)

Have a great week y’all!
