9 Lessons For a Better Year

  • 5 of 9

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. - Lao Tzuis

Lesson 5: Take only the actions that are true for you.

Saying yes is a sacred act. Your resources–time, energy, money, attention, etc.–are all you have at your disposal. Think about how you’re using them. If there isn’t enough of you to go around, it’s time to reconsider. Think about why you say yes.

This article is overflowing with hope & optimism and devoid of judgement or criticism. I am the better for reading it today. I am convinced that often we are all our own worst enemies in that we condemn ourselves nearly every day of our all too short lives. I have few regrets in my own life & I feel I have made very good choices in the opportunities that were presented. Excellent advice for starting a new year or new life. Or, take it one day @ a time (that's all we get, anyway, right?);go out and plant your tomorrow, yet today! You have the seeds there in your pocket! This life/ garden analogy is awe inspiring & truly beautiful bc it is a basic simple truth. Live & appreciate what you can do today...............................

Thank-you for the article. A lot depends on one's own viewpoint. We are all a product of our environment. Yes one has to let go of the past to move forward, however, our past does have a sizable impact on us no matter what. Would it be possible to put all 9 lessons on one page to allow for easier reading? It would be appreciated.
