New Year, Same Resolutions, Different Strategy

Resolutions are a wonderful opportunity to reflect on what hasn't worked in the past while focusing on what is possible for the future. I honestly love reading other people's New Year Resolution post online. I appreciate sharing in other's positive energy and hope of a new year. It makes me feel more positive and hopeful.

As I think back on my 2018 resolutions, I'm pretty proud of myself and everything I was able to achieve. I wanted to become more politically involved so I gave my self concrete goals of volunteering and reporting over local politics. I eventually ended up even working as a field organizer for Beto O'Rourke's campaign for U.S. Senate. 

This year, I'm circling back to a resolution from last year, or rather the last eight years or so, which is to stop procrastinating and be more productive. I am the world's worst best? procrastinator. Procrastination is something that I've struggled with all my life, it seriously threatened my college career, and I recognize that it's still the root of most the problems in my life. 

Every year I set the vague goal to stop procrastinating, but I don't ever feel as ever truly accomplish this. So this year I'm setting a more concrete goal. In 2019, I resolve to be more productive and to stop procrastinating so every day I will decide my top three to do's, and I will complete them by noon that day. 

I feel good about my strategy, and so far, one day into the year, I've kept up with it. :)
