My New Year’s resolution

January 8, 2016
New Year's resolutions | CaramelSun

I’ve been trying to be a minimalist for some time. Living in rented flats has taught me to limit myself when it comes to shopping for clothes and furniture. Now it’s time to apply it to something even more important – my daily life.

Ever since I quit my full-time job and became a master of my own time, I’ve had so many ideas in my head (and each one of them is very interesting!), that I… don’t know where to start. Thousands ideas for projects, ideas for new challenges, blog posts, photos… And, of course, too little time to make it all happen. You know how it is – the more time we have, the more time we waste.

That’s why this year I’ve decided to focus on one thing at a time. Finish the projects that I’ve already started. Stop distracting myself with mobile phones, social media, messengers and invitations. Considering the fast-paced, digitalised world we live in, it’s a challenge.

I’m not claiming that we need to lock ourselves in a wooden hut, away from the people (though that could be a solution…). Nor I mean that all of a sudden we need to start saying “no” to everything and everyone. But… perhaps take more time to think before we enthusiastically say “yes”.

One of the most important projects which I want to finish this year is writing a guidebook about London. The first part of the guidebook consists of my observations regarding the London reality. In the second part you will find walks in hidden, less known London.

I’ve already got a large part of it written and I’m at such a stage that I need motivation to finish it. That’s why I’d like to ask for your help – if you are interested in reading the guidebook (it will only be in Polish – at least for now), please let me know in a comment or private message.

Each and every comment motivates me to keep pushing and writing. An author really likes to know that somebody is reading his words, you know?:)

OK, I’m off to writing my guidebook. I wish you stay strong with your New Year’s resolutions and manage to focus on one thing at a time!
