Underpromise and overdeliver

 It’s a dawn of a new beginning. 2022 a lot of promises, maybe New Year's resolutions for going to the gym.

All of those big promises will fail. Not because you do something wrong, but because you want too much too fast.

Instead of overpromising and underdeliver, try to underpromise and overdeliver.

Don’t ask for a fit body, ask to not go over your body weight and do one more push up per day.

Don’t ask to be rich, ask to have at most the same amount of expenses per month minus 1 dollar.

Start small, and if it works, keep going. Try to under-promise and day after day, month after month, increase the level. Increase the difficulties. Keep going until you reach the hardest level, which, in your case, will be your desired level.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
