An ice cream that fell to the floor

This is it. Another year has passed, which means it’s time for the New Year’s resolutions posts.

I thought of joining the fun, but then I realised how much I’ve yet to achieve for 2022. So for my final post of this year, I figured I’d reflect on my shortcomings instead of my hopes and dreams.

Because as Socrates said, an unexamined life is one not worth living. So let’s examine mine and we’ll see if I can cough up some lessons on how to make the most out of 2023.

This Is How You Fail At Overcoming Procrastination

A photo of someone slipping on banana peel with the text overlay saying: The best ways to (badly) overcome procrastination

Procrastination is like a credit card: fun until you get the bill. It’s also the art of keeping up with yesterday.

I wish I could say I came up with those insights. Alas, they’re credited to people much smarter than I am. Who, you ask? I’ll get back to you on that. Tomorrow. Maybe.

Look, I wish I could tell you I have the answer to procrastination, and that there is a surefire way to getting things done, but every time I think I’ve solved the problem, I wake up the next day and have to fight the battle all over again.

But just because I don’t have the answers doesn’t mean I don’t have the answers, am I right? So here are ways to fail at beating procrastination (which I excel at). And if you’re looking at actually being productive, all you’ll need to do is the reverse.

But don’t hold me to anything though, because who knows if I’ll change my mind again? For now, let’s just start with the new pros and cons I’ve discovered since using said apps.

How To Raise Your Vibration To Better Handle Your Life Problems

How to raise your vibration: Singing bowls for sound bath with the title: Change the way you look at life

You may think I’ve lost the plot. What’s all this talk about raising your vibration and frequency? Am I promoting magic crystals? Chakra healing? Soul rejuvenation?

No need to hide your credit cards. I’m not selling sound bowls. Yet. Today’s post is simply brought to you by my problems, or my perception of them, at least.

You see, I’ve been stuck at a crossroads, especially when it comes to my career. But it’s through these struggles that I’ve learned how you can look at a problem from two different perspectives.

How To Deal With The Highs And Lows Of Life

Two people standing before a wall with decision workflow

So I posted about being in a rut not too long ago, and I have to admit, it’s been a challenge trying to claw my way back out. But that’s life for you, right? A constant journey of highs and lows?

Sometimes, Low Me just barges into my life like an unwanted relative. But I can’t just close the door on him, because that’d mean closing the door on High Me too.

That’s why we’ll be exploring the things you should do when you reach either side of the spectrum, who shall henceforth be known as High You and Low You.
