“We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.”
A by-no-means-exhaustive list of stuff that you should give yourself permission to simply ditch in the upcoming year:
Subscriptions you aren’t using (we ditched NowTV)
Crippling self doubt and/or loathing. God, the time you’ll get back…
Any sense of shame or dismay about your faves–if you like cheesy pop music, reruns of specific sitcoms instead of that new prestige drama everyone one else is into, certain video games, or anything at all that gives you joy, lean into that feeling and let your fan flag fly!
Social media feeds that do not positively contribute to your life in some way, or that magnify unhealthy or negative tendencies
One toxic relationship–doesn’t matter what kind
One bad habit
Any tendency to speak unkindly about yourself
Self flagellation over that one Big Idea or task that you can’t seem to make progress on. Take a break, give yourself some grace, focus on something else for a bit and see what happens
The broken gadgets and mismatched cords in that one drawer you never open
Clothes that don’t fit
Books you don’t like
Stuff you don’t use
Obviously this is mostly a self reminder, but more seriously, list me some of the things you are going to try to leave in 2018?
