On New Year Resolutions

So it's another new year coming in hot.

People are getting to feel the hype just as instantly. And as most of us did every time new year hit in the past, this time around we too want to come out with a new year resolution.

Quit smoking, get a new job, buy a new car, gain higher dividend from capital investment, get a wife, get rid of a wife et cetera, among other wonderful hopes that people usually come out with to show to the world their visions of the year.

As for me, I don't have any resolution so far. But does that makes me less a visionary?


I have greater plans for my life. Some goes for two months, some goes for two years. The range varies, really.

Please don't take me as an arrogant person who wants to be different at each time. I just happen to dislike the idea of to be having plans only on new year's eve, when we all know that at least three-quarter of the plans will somewhat be abandoned in a little less than a quarter of the year after that particular new year celebration.

Then we will tell to ourselves that, well, why not wait for the next new year to come and maybe, you know, come out with new/renewed resolutions again, just like everybody else?
