New Year’s Resolutions 2022: Diverse and motivated

Posted on January 1, 2022

Because life is a never-ending learning process, every year I set myself new areas to improve. For many years I have been writing publicly my new year resolutions (2021,2020, 2019, etc) and my own assessments at the end of the year (2021,2020, 2019, etc). The process of writing them and after 365 days revisiting them is a practice that I find useful. This time I won’t split the objectives into different categories. Instead I’ll merge them together wihtout any lengthRead More

2021 resolutions revised: PhD done, nothing else though

Posted on December 30, 2021

In Denmark, we started 2021 deep in lockdown. Things gradually improved early summer until we got an almost normal life back in December. This year was my last PhD year where I also submited my thesis (still need to defend). After reviewing the goals I can sum it up as lots of red. Personal Physical exercises: I kept doing regular workouts, specially runs but also bike rides and swims. This year I did my personal best times in semi-official races.Read More

2020 resolutions revised: Incredible plot twist and the new normal

Posted on December 28, 2020

What an incredible 2020! One year ago nobody would have expected this, and now the whole world has normalized this “new normal”. A bat flu has crashed all world economies and united mankind for the research of a vaccine to overcome this new virus. I guess nobody had a pandemic in the apocalypse bingo for 2020. Nevertheless, I tried to make the most of this rollercoaster year and instead of grieving, I tried to accept what we’ve been given. InRead More

New Year’s Resolutions 2020: Focusing on the right habits

Posted on January 6, 2020

For eight years I’ve been setting public goals for myself. With more or less success I’ve also been evaluating the outcomes without exception. From these reviews come the feedback I crave to keep improving and tweaking to adapt myself. From last year’s review, one of the main conclusions was that I need some more focus and planning. I’m satisfied because I achieved a fair amount of goals, but I missed many of the optional or less relevant ones. So, thisRead More

2019 resolutions revised

Posted on January 4, 2020

This blog entered a new phase during 2019. I started writing in English and the first post was the new year’s resolutions. Like I did with the previous years, now it’s time to review the goals I set up for myself and evaluate them. I should say that on one side I’m happy because I achieved most of the main goals; however, I did add quite a lot of “side quests” that I miserably failed at. But from failures oneRead More

New Year's Resolutions 2019: Building the right habits

Posted on January 2, 2019

New year’s eve signals a new beginning. It is a random time point when people set their expectations for the following 12 months. This last year was about changes  – moving, and adapting myself to new circumstances – however, this 2019 is about consolidation. I’ve already been living in Copenhagen for a while, now I know the city and the people. New year’s resolutions help me to move forward by setting goals that were unthinkable few months back but itRead More
