2021 Resolutions

I’ve been a part of a private resolution group for three years now where we aim to hit 70% completion. Last year, was my best year at 45-52% depending on how I calculated my success rate.

Affirmations from last year’s Bujo.

I like keeping resolutions as it is a reference point of something I want to work on, but might not check in on it again until the end of the year. So the group at least reminds myself that I need to check in to see if I am trying to stay on track. Life also happens and some resolutions get derailed, that is okay. Keeping resolutions has taught me to be gentler with myself and to celebrate all of my small victories. I’ve learned to strive for progress, not perfection.

Without further ado here are my resolutions for 2021:

The goal of this year is to retain Korean, review Japanese, start learning Chinese and continue improving my Tibetan. To keep it in focus I wrote my resolutions in English and Tibetan. A Tibetan friend checked my translation and fixed all my mistakes. I then decided why not add Korean and had a Korean friend check it for mistakes. I have the English written in my phone and here in this post, but in my bullet journal I only wrote Tibetan and Korean.

My 1st quarter Tibetan language goals

I also broke my language learning goals for Tibetan, Korean, and Japanese down a little. I’m going to try a quarterly approach to see how much I can actually commit to without feeling overwhelmed or giving up. I think it should go rather well and I have to thank the video by polyglot, Lindie Botes, for mentioning that and giving me the idea.

A few of the resolutions don’t need to be completed in 2021 as they are flexible based on my financial situation over the coming year. Like a wedding, professional photos, trips, these can all be done or moved around. However, I think having them written as a resolution helps to add importance to them so that I set aside time to try and achieve them, or put the plans in motion.

January 2021 Bujo Entry

Not everyone sets resolutions, but I like to. How about you?
