Happy New Year!
Yeah, it’s that time of the year again, the time for us to review the year and to set new goals. That’s what people commonly term as New Year Resolutions. :p
Readers of Dear1 and Dear2 would probably know that Dear1 and Dear2 have been setting new year resolutions for the past 3 years. As we do our yearly goal setting religiously, Dear1 and Dear2 were surprised to find that our list of 2009 resolutions is actually shorter den the previous years. Hmm, I guess that’s its benefits.
During our early years, Dear1 and Dear2 had a lot of things to do in preparation for our marriage – buy house, renovate, ROM, house warming, traditional wedding etc – these are the usual course of events for couples. And the starting of protection plans, savings plans, investment plans etc, these are the step by step approach towards your own healthy financial being. Some of the tasks are daunting, afterall, all of us have only 24hours a day, 365 days a year, and limited capability to generate limited income. Thus, we need to priotize goals, and work hard for them. As you maintain your resolve steadfastly, all these dreams can come true for u, some maybe later den sooner, but at least fulfilled!
2008 had been a bad year for the world, financially and all, and it was a trying year for Dear1 and Dear2 as well, who got bogged down by the negative atmosphere in our workplace. Resolutions wise, as always, some of them were uncompleted or had changed course along the way, but Dear2 can proudly say that there were no regrets as there was conscious efforts to try to achieve what we set out to do at the beginning of the year. Efforts over results, that’s what Dear2 always say. :p
