Photo: an old carriage wheel in Kitahama Station, Hokkaido

Its the first weekend of 2019. The fireworks and champagne have been put away. Reality strikes. 2019. As my nephew put it, its the last year that has any teen in it.

My friend Joseph from Chinese Toastmasters club sent this greeting.

用真诚经营爱情 (love/ romance)
用执着追求事业 (career)
用善良对待朋友 (relationship)
用平淡对待磨难 (meditation/ spirituality)
用虔诚祈盼幸福 (fun/ joy)
用感恩回报人间 (social causes)

心随爱走,爱随心愿。
朋友一生幸福,永远快乐!

In every culture, the new year signifies hope, new beginnings.

Even as I meditate on this photo I took in Hokkaido, Japan of an old carriage wheel found in a displaced train station, where no one stops but is now a tourist stopover from a long drive. Horse carriage disrupted by trains disrupted by cars, disrupted by …

Time rushes on.

Disruption is the only constant.

What 3 major areas will you focus in 2019?

Health/ fitness?

Can you combine any of these goals?

I’ve finally signed up for a diploma on social media branding. My goal is to increase my writing and launch a podcast.

Q: Can”t I learn on my own?
A: I’m relying on a community to push me. We will see.

As Stephen Covey wrote in his book on 7 Habits of Successful people, put in the big rocks first.
