40 Resolutions That Do You Good!

Posted by gottabkd on Monday, December 31, 2007

I am not a resolution maker! The fact of the matter is that when most people make ’em, especially at the begining of a new year, they tend not to keep ’em. Been there, done that.

Well here are 40 resolutions that will enhance your daily life and even if you only do a few of them, you will feel better. Enjoy!

1.) Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.
2.) Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have to.
3.) Buy a TIVO, record your late night shows, and get more sleep.
4.) When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement: My purpose is to___________ today.
5.) Live with the 3 E’s: Energy, Enthusiasm, Empathy.
6.) Watch more movies, play more games, and read more books than you did in 2006.
7.) Make time to practice meditation, yoga, tai chi, qigong, and prayer. They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.
8.) Spend more time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.
9.) Dream more while you are awake.
10.) Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less foods that are manufactured in plants.
11.) Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds, and walnuts.
12.) Try to make at least 3 people smile each day.
13.) Clear your clutter from your house, your car, your desk, and let new and flowing energy into your life.
14.) Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts, or things you cannot control. Instead, invest your energy in the positive present moment.
15.) Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class, but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
16.) Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.
17.) Smile and laugh more. It will keep the energy vampires away.
18.) Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
19.) Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
20.) Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

20 Rules of Motorcycle Riding!

Posted by gottabkd on Saturday, December 29, 2007

Lifted straight from the VROC forum…

20. The two most useless things to a rider are the braking distance behind you, and nine-tenth of a second ago.

19. Remember… gravity and centrifugal force are not just good ideas, they are laws and are not subject to appeal.

18. Keep looking around. There’s always something you’ve missed.

17. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgment.

16. In the ongoing battle between objects made of metal, rubber, and fiberglass… going 100+ miles per hour, and the ground going zero miles per hour, the ground has yet to lose. Same holds for cars, large trucks, and animals taller than you. Draws don’t count.

15. If all you can see in your mirrors is sparks and all you can hear is screaming from your passenger, things may not be as they should be.

14. You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

13. There are two simple rules for riding smoothly and fast in snow and on ice. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.

12. Always try to keep the number of times you put your side-stand down equal to the number of times you put the side-stand up.

11. Never let a motorcycle take you somewhere your brain didn’t get to three seconds earlier.
