Creative Resolutions Could Enhance Your Life in 2019

untless people use the beginning of a new year as an opportunity to set goals for their health, careers, and relationships—hence the age-old concept of New Year’s Resolutions. As you think about what you want to achieve this year, consider the following unique resolutions that could potentially enrich your life:


  • Have breakfast or lunch with someone with whom you disagree—and vow to keep an open mind. Whether you’ve sparred with a friend about politics, philosophical issues, or you’ve simply had a rift, the first step in healing the relationship is to have a truly open-minded conversation. If you know someone whom you used to value, but whose differences you have been unable to see past, consider inviting them to lunch. Agree that neither of you will attempt to persuade the other; instead, maintain a sense of curiosity and strive to simply have a conversation. Even if you both hold steady to your beliefs, you should be able to establish the mutual sense of respect that is essential to rekindling your relationship.
  • Schedule time to be bored each week. From smartphones to streaming television, many people never feel bored in today’s hyperconnected world. But did you know that occasional boredom can benefit your brain? When your brain has “off time” as it does when you are bored, it becomes better equipped to solve nagging problems, connect disparate ideas, and gain a sense of clarity about your personal journey and goals. While you may find it difficult to relax, resolve that you will schedule some electronics-free time each week to simply do nothing.
  • Get out of your Rut- Try a Thin Crispy Pancake instead of a Fluffy Pancake. That's right, are you stuck on those old fluffy and gut filling pancakes. Get rid them and go for a great thin crispy pancake singed round the edges. So much better but hard to find. Here I am about 10 years ago (notice the cell phone) eating one of these ethnic crispy thin pancakes at Pamela's P&G Diner in Milvale, PA and they also have similar pancakes at the Crying Onion Cafe in Tucson, Arizona. I seek these pancakes out. Same as in other things in life, try something might be surprised!
  • Look at the world from a new perspective- you might see things differently as in this an actual photo not a collage

Dear Jeff,

Those sound like some creative solutions for a change of pace.

"Same as in other things in life, try something new... you might be surprised!"
