Happy New year, Awesomites.
You might wonder what the word Awesomites means. Well it is a new year and I decided I would find a new way of addressing you because I think you are the most awesome person to ever grace the world.
Awesomite: An awesome fan whom Tareal’s Ink appreciates for their support and love.
One of the greatest things about the new year is that the year begins on a Wednesday and Wednesday is an amazing day because I will be publishing new posts on this blog on Wednesdays.
By God’s grace and by my effort to beat procrastination, I have decided to make sure that there is a post on this blog every Wednesday so that I can meet up with the goal I set last year.
And that brings me to today’s post:
Declarations over Resolutions.
Let’s start with a definition of terms:
(Merriam webster: the end toward which effort is directed)
Goals are those things that you aim to reach for. Those thing that make you decide to take on a new years resolution. For example, I could say that I want to learn to play the guitar. That is my goal.
New year resolutions:
(Merriam Webster: Something that is resolved)
I don’t think I need to explain what new year resolutions are but I will chip in a word or two about them.
New year resolutions are those promises we make to ourselves at the beginning of a year in the hopes that we can become better persons or achieve those goals we have conveniently put off since the previous year.
We feel like a new year is a new start because we often make new year resolutions at the beginning of the year (which by the way is just another turning of the day). We find ourselves breaking our commitment to achieve these goals and when we fail, we decide we can always start again next year.
Some people walk around with a notion that change can only be achieved when it begins at the beginning of the year.
For example I could say that this year (2020) I want to learn to play the guitar.
This is what you declare into your new year. For example, I can declare that by 2020, I will play the guitar. That doesn’t seem so different from new year resolutions. Does it? But there is a difference.
A resolution is an intention to start something at the beginning of the year while declaration is what you envision for that whole year. The difference between thinkers and doers is the difference between resolutions and declarations.
So at the start of this year, I want to urge you to make declarations for this year. Don’t just make the declarations, stick to them.
The best time to make a declaration is yesterday (Seriously, the previous year) because you are supposed to start fufiling your declarations so that at the end of the year, you can look back and say, yes I did this thing.
My declaration for Tareal’s Ink for the year 2020 is:
1) By December 31st 2020, Tareal’s Ink would be a more professional brand and it will have a synonymous brand look across all social media platforms.
2) I declare that by December 31st 2020, I would have at least 60 posts on this blog.
What are your declarations? Share them in the comment box below. You never know who has the same idea and who can help you in fulfilling your goal.
