2014 is almost gone and usually that means people begin to throw out the new year’s resolutions such as wanting to lose weight. For myself I usually take the time to reflect upon things that I want to try and spend more time on as I always want to learn something new. In a way, a new year for me gives me a reason to pursue different hobbies and challenges.
I always find it’s a great way to learn new skills and traits that we would normally have to spend a lot of money to acquire. I also look at any items I purchased and whether or not I have adequately justified its purchase as a potential factor in determining what I should do. Example, if I spent hundreds of dollars on exercise gear and haven’t used it then I would either find a way to sell it in the new year or to develop an activity around it.
One thing is for sure though where whatever I do it shouldn’t require me to invest a lot of money in doing so. That way I should be genuinely passionate about whatever it is I am doing as opposed to wasted money being the main motivator.
