I'm doing something new this 2018!

in life •  11 months ago


Now that 2018 is officially here, I am really happy and excited as to what this new year will bring! It used to be whenever another year comes along in my life, I don't really get all excited about it and just being meh. I used to have a carefree attitude and just living my life day to day, hell my whole life I have never made or believe in new year's resolutions! I always think it's a waste of time doing that.

But this year, I'm gonna do something different and new in my life! I'm gonna start 2018 by following and doing a long-held tradition of our society, making a new year's resolution! I'm gonna be making a list of it and share it with you guys, my Steemit family. Hopefully, by the end of 2018, I've had accomplished or changed my life based on it. So without further ado, here is a list of my New Year's resolution:

1. Develop myself into a better person

Over the years I have noticed myself getting more and more impatient, especially at work and I'm always anxious. I don't know if it's caused by stress or something else but what I do know is that it affects my relationship with the people around me. I also tend to procrastinate at times especially after having a hard day at work and I would think to myself that I deserve a 'reward' and give myself an excuse to slack off and not make any blog or engage with the community here.

All this has to change and I wish that with being more mindful of my negative attitudes and developing a deliberate action to get rid of and change them, I get to become a better version of myself.

2. Spend more time with my family

I've also noticed that as I am spending more and more time here on Steemit, I've come to neglect doing one of the most important activities in life: spending time with my family.

A lot of times my family would invite me to have dinner with them or go to the mall and I would decline because I still have a blog to do or I'm busy reading articles about cryptocurrencies.


I've come to realize that what I really need is better time management and if I'm really pressed for time and I need to choose between spending time with my family or making a blog, the latter can always take a backseat. Family is everything and there's no guarantee how long we can all be together so I must make the most of my time spending it with them whenever I can.

3. Manage my time better on Steemit

Speaking of time management, I admit I'm quite bad at managing my time. Instead of using it to engage with the people here, there are times where I just waste my time watching Youtube videos about nonsense stuff. Or when I'm finished making a blog, I spend so much time wastefully trying to edit and change the words again and again in order to have a 'good' blog even though it's not really necessary.

So starting today, I'm gonna be making a conscious effort to keep track of how I spend my time here and use it efficiently.

4. Have my own business someday

Currently, I'm helping out my family with our family business. But I've come to realize that this is not what I really want to be doing and I will not be taking over the reins of the business if ever my parents decide to retire (but my brother is)

Right now, I'm still looking to have my own business but what I've noticed about myself is that I'm drawn more into technologies and the online world. Actually, a few months back before I got into Steemit, I and my friend talked about doing a tech startup together but we scrapped it due to personal reasons.

Who knows maybe someday I will have a business here online leveraging the blockchain technology or possibly have multiple streams of income from it. If any of you have any startup ideas here, feel free to hit me up a chat! Maybe we can start a partnership or something.

Anyways, that's about it for my new year's resolution! I'm happy to have shared it with you guys! Before I let you go, I would like to leave you with a few questions:

I can so relate on the whole time management on Steemit haha.

I write a post, edit and reedit it again and again till I am satisfied then comes the payouts and get cents lol.
But it's fine sometimes I do well most of the time not but I like the posts that I wrote because they are interesting to me.
Writing is therapy to me.

My brother and I are on crypto trading and doing very small ICO Investments. Aside from that we still have day jobs until it becomes we can live off investments and have multiple streams of income.

Good luck on your 2018.


Here's to a bright future in the crypto world and to financial freedom my friend! Cheers! 😀

Thanks for sharing! I think those are all great goals for 2018.

One of my goals for the new year that I really want to focus on is reading and writing more. I have never been much of a reader, but I have always wanted to read more. I think that it will really expand my knowledge and help me become a better writer and speaker. It will also help me to expand my vocabulary.

Steemit has been a great place for me to read more often and learn a lot of new things!! :)


Me too! Steemit has expanded my knowlrdge a lot! I like to read and im glad im in this community! 😀 reading for me is one of the most important activity a person does in his lifetime. Unfortunately a lot of people dont see the value of reading a book.


Heres to a wonderful 2018 and keep on reading and expanding your knowledge! Cheers! 😀

There is nothing like family. Whatever you do, family always comes fast.
Glad to know you made decision to spend more time with family.

We all have the same 24 hours a day. We cannot extend it. How we spend our time that is, time management is very important.

2018 is very important and special for me. Steemit is going to be huge. I will keep posting and interacting with amazing people here on steemit.


Thanks for taking a look on my post man! Yeah family always comes first no matter what! 2018 is special for me too! And i wish us all success here in steemit! 😀


Thank you, my friend! Wish you all the best!
