You become what you think about. (Ancient Wisdom from many traditions.)

We begin a new year leaving behind a tumultuous one. If you were a news junkie, your mind must be close to mush.

I don’t recommend New Year’s Resolutions or any of a variety of goals.

Better is to review last year and decide what new or replaced habits will make me better as a human and contributor this year.

One I suggest if you have not already done it is to go on “news fasts.” Filter your news sources and pare them back. Check news like you would email–just a very few times a day.

Instead fill your mind with new learning and ancient wisdom. Always be learning. Always aware of opportunities coming toward you. Ready to act when opportune.

This way of life has changed me.

What will I learn this year? How will I contribute this year?

Here’s a wish for a good 2019 for you.
