The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

Trends for Life
September just started and brought with it not only Pumpkin Spice Latte (of which I wrote a year ago on Just Like NY), but also some “trends” for this Fall and Winter. And I guess for li...

Step 40 – Do You Always Need To Change?
I keep writing about change and about how important it is to work on yourself in order to become the best version of oneself, but I also believe that there are times that you really shouldn’t ...

The Worst Type of Guy You Should Always Avoid
I recently watched one of Matthew’s Hussey’s videos (I wrote about him on Just Like NY already), and he said a very interesting thing: the most dangerous man for a woman is not a guy who...

Step 39: The Map of Happiness
Do you think that something like a map of happiness really exists…? I believe it does. I just watched an interview (on Impact Theory again; which is the YouTube channel I mentioned you a few ...

NY ID CARD
NY is full of paradoxes, as is the whole United States. You can clearly see it just about every situation when you have to deal with something “official”. Last year, NY mayor De Blassio ...

Step 38 – Don’t give up on this year yet

added: 2017-08-16 , category: Transform Yourself

 

We are in the middle of August and that means that over 7 months of this year are gone. But the good news is that 5 of them are still left. It’s almost half of the year! 5 months is roughly 150 days! Do you know how much time that is? Don’t give up on this year just yet and make a new plan. What was it that you really wanted to do this year? Do you still remember? I took out my planner (as I do at the beginning of every moth), and looked at my 2017 goals. Some of them are in progress, some of them have not started working on yet. But the fact that I haven’t even started to work on them yet shouldn’t stop me, right? I can start right now. Why not? Those goals are still valid and I still want to achieve them (like drinking water with lemon every morning – haven’t done it at all this year!). Maybe you look at your list and you don’t want to accomplish certain goals anymore or you have found new goals that became more important to you. Whatever that is – you still have time. You wanted to change your body? (a cliché New Years resolution) You can start in this very moment. Today is as good as any other day in January or February. Just take the first step, and then it’s going to be easier.  It’s all about creating a new habit. 

          I’m pretty happy with my list, although there are some points that I really suck at, such as: I promised myself to go on more dates, but I went only on a few ones with this one guy and a few with another guy, not having a clue that they were dates (oops). It’s somehow not my priority, but maybe it should be, because it’d put an extra smile on my face. And my body would be very happy as well. I’ll work on that, I promise (I can’t believe I have to promise something like that).

          Don’t think that you have to make a full list. Just think of one thing that you really wanted to achieve or accomplish. Something that would just make your life better and would make you happier. Think about that and put all your afford towards that. Whatever that is that you wanted to do - change your body, save money, start writing a book, do photography classes, learn how to make videos (my case), build something, go to a dream place - you still can do it.  Just ask yourself: What do I have to do to get there?

          The most important thing though is – don’t put a pressure on yourself. Don’t treat this thing as something you HAVE TO DO, look at that as something you really WANT TO DO. It will change your whole perspective on it and it will really help you to achieve that goal. And don’t set too many goals for yourself – you’ll get dizzy and you will be discouraged before you even start. Remember - You do it, because it will improve your life. Be happy about it, get excited. If you think of this new goal as a burden, it will immediately start to be one.  Growth is an adventure, aren’t you curious of whom you’d become? Just take a deep breath and enjoy the ride…
