What are you going to do in 2014? What are you planning to fill 2014 with? What a new year means for you? How do you want the end of 2014 looks like? What are the changes you want to make in your life?

These are few questions that we need to ask ourselves right now.

Every year we make resolutions. But the truth is resolution does not work. Saying goes we make resolutions to break them. We do make New Year resolutions with excitement and for most of us excitement wears off right after a week or so. So, this year I decided not to go for New Year resolutions instead I have fixed some changes for myself, in my life style, to make my life better.

I suggest you to try this different approach this year. Pick some positive changes you want to see in your life. Work on them. At the end of the year you’ll be happy to see some meaningful changes in your life.

Here is my list of changes for 2014.

  1. Finish what you start
  2. Start making something happen
  3. Use social media mindfully
  4. Sleep early and rise early
  5. Practice farsightedness
  6. Do one thing well, do less
  7. Focus on implementation
  8. Give more often
  9. Use public transport & walk
  10. Don’t procrastinate
  11. Practice minimalism
  12. Think often
  13. Presence over productivity
