2013habitslifeself development

This time my new year’s resolutions are here to stay. For life. I hope sometime soon I form them into my personal constitution, relating to the pro-activeness habit, one of the seven habits of highly effective people. In addition, I plan to have an annual review for keeping up with more specific roles and goals for 2013. To cut things short, my todo list is:

  1. To live a life true to myself
  2. To don’t work so hard
  3. To have the courage to express my feelings
  4. To stay in touch with my friends
  5. To be happier
  6. To aim high
  7. To be modest (“You don’t know what you don’t know”)
  8. To have passion
  9. To build my character taking also into account values and virtues I admire in others
  10. To believe in myself
  11. To work with people I like and have fun with
  12. To be surrounded with people with positive energy
  13. To be patient and not to give up
  14. To admit my mistakes
  15. To be lucky

OK I know the last one is not up to me, but I interpret it as “To don’t run for trains”. Note: you must have read the Black Swan book in order to understand this one.

The first five are taken from the blog post “REGRETS OF THE DYING“, while the next ten from a talk by Nikos Stathopoulos (in Greek) about the habits of highly effective people.
