New Year’s Eve, New Year Resolution

Filed under: Emotional Intelligence — admin @ 12:31 am

“The main interest in life and work is to become someone else that you were not in the beginning.”
― Michel Foucault

It is this time of the year when we both look back and look forward. On 12/17/2011, while my daughter and I were at the Barnes & Noble’s bookstore, I shared with her Foucault’s word. I said, “In other words, you are a different person from the one you start with.” To be sure, these few words are open to interpretation.

Still, I find his statement very much fitting for this occasion, that is, if you can re-word it like this — the main purpose of New Year Resolution is to become, in some way, someone at the end of the year that you were not at the begining of the year, or a better version of you.
