I’ve just got back from a Chinese New Year celebration with family in Jakarta and am still marvelling at how fast time flies these days. In a span of the past month, 2016 gave way to 2017, I turned 32, and the year of the fire rooster rolled in.
For many people, this is a time for new year resolutions. While I understand the desire to grow into a better version of oneself, I find it rather arbritrary to evaluate and set one’s goals at the start of the year. If there’s a goal worth pursuing, a change worth implementing, why not do it then and there?
For me and Arnold, the passing of time always reminds us of our ultimate goal which hasn’t changed: to get to a point where we no longer have to work for money. We’re lucky enough that this is achievable, so much so that we’ll hopefully get there in a few more years.
Though it’s rather late, here’s wishing everyone a happiest new year! May this year get you closer to achieving your own goal, whatever you choose to set your mind to.
