Nothing so special about this year, it has been passed whether or not you prepared of what’s coming. This morning I happened to blog-walking to some blogs for a change (cause I have not been so active recently on my blog, so being a silent reader at some points really refreshing). I was fascinated by one, in her post she mentioned about “sort of” her resolutions for this year. She changed about 80% of her life style. Being an early riser and does exercises regularly for about 30-45 minutes after her iced coffee morning ritual. She also mentioned by making a change for her self, she feels that she is more productive than she used to be and less of her times wasted. Then I have my “moment of silent” after reading her post. Her certain post. I used to have resolutions some years of stone ago, be it very cheesy one until the very serious one (note down that I never had resolution to go on diet) I did try to keep my resolution the whole year, such as “sitting side by side with my best friend on a plane headed to Europe”. We did eventually, not so long from our resolution’s made. With a twist (of course), we did sit side by side (in a train though!) for our journey across the Netherlands – Germany. We didn’t go together at the same time to Europe, we had our chance differently, my best friend happened to have her scholarship for master degree in the Netherlands, while I got mine in Italy a year after her. Then I and (she too) checked our resolution’s list, and move on to another one. But, as time goes by, lots of those resolutions are not kept; let’s say I was busy, busy struggling my life in Europe, busy surviving and trying to finish my thesis. Busy keeping up my relationship with errrhh an Italian hottie after a German geek (both not worked though), and all of sudden all resolutions seemed not important.

Anyway, back to the blog-post I visited this morning, it struck me a bit, thinking how long have I live my life without any resolution nor any goals. How many times I have wasted. To analyze with whatever written in her blog post (though it’s not fair in one way or another), she was not a morning person who’s now becoming an early riser which start her day at 4:30 every f*cking morning, while me, I am a natural morning bird who wake up precisely at 4 or 4:30 in the morning, just because my biological clock tells my body to do so. And I drink my espresso religiously soon after I woke up. If I don’t have class in the morning (I have 3 classes in the morning in a week) surely I will be in my workout suit, to do some workout. I prefer to do it at home, cause it’s less time consuming, unless if I had a plan to swim, then I have to go to the sport center. After all those rituals, I start my day, check my appointment since I am in the middle of building a start-up with another best friend and do whatever in my schedule book. As a freelancer for this past 2 years, I am in and out of jobs in a flick of fingers. Which is I could be here in my city in the morning and in an aero plane / train heading to another city in the afternoon.

So here I am thinking, If changing life style at some points makes your life more effective not to mention productive, what about me who has been a natural morning person since your youngest siblings not even born, who has coffee ritual followed with a helluva of workout 5 times a week? (to brag a bit, I have lean muscles and nice ABS).

Should I do all the opposite to make a change?
