Default New Year Resolution 2013

It's that time of the year again. I know 99% of you failed your goal made for the year 2012. Now it's time to look forward and forget the past.

You have few days to think and plan ahead. Don't make promises that you will not be able to keep.

So my resolution for the year 2013 is the start of my journey to become a Millionaire by 2015.

Current balance: 2 dollars
Goal: 1 million dollars
Time frame: 2 years and few days.

Good luck everyone.

I made no resolution last year and found the 2012 to be directionless as a result. That wasn't altogether a bad experience but I will make a few this year. I'm opting for the Mahmudullah Riyad approach this year and setting goals I can meet.

1) Sell one of my apartments and then put the money in my mom's FDR account so that she can retire.

2) Launch our collaborative cloud services venture providing IaaS, PaaS and SaaS for the agribusiness, garments and pharmaceutical sectors, and connect classrooms in Dhaka with classrooms all over rural Bangladesh.

3) Stay out of trouble in my political party without compromising my and the party's core values.

4) Work harder on my Adab, Quaeda and Rewaz.

5) Start getting back in shape.

6) Work on several film, art and literature projects.

7) Never forget to do the best I can whenever I'm doing something so that I'd never have to wonder whether I had done all that I could.

I like your number 7. I think it will help you achieve all 6 above it.

Probably one of the most important years for me. Need to get admitted into a good university. Admission exams are getting really really competitive so have to study a lot. And the hardest part is, probably I'll have to miss a series or two of Bangladesh in the process(First time ever).

2012 has been a really bumpy year for me. Especially over the past 2 months. Struggled at times. I just hope 2013 is a smooth year filled with enjoyment. Also i plan to really progress and do well in my studies.

Do at least one good thing in every 2/3 days so at the year-end the list crosses 100.

Finish Ph.D., well I guess it is not goal anymore, I am supposed to finish in 2013, or the University won't give me the degree as maximum 10 year mark will be reached.

Is it part time? I thought only in UK(Max 7 years time limit), you can do part time PhD. Telling from my personal experience, I would not recommend to anyone if you have a full time job unless you are sponsored by your company and your PhD research is part of your job. Also better to do this in your twenties.

I was a full time Graduate Assistant when I started my Doctorate in Fall 2004. In Jan. 2006 I started my full-time job when all my course credits were finished and had a long 2-year gap of not taking any research credit. I started back in 2008 and since then North Dakota State due to having their unique ways mostly because having lot of part-timers from MicroSoft, allowed me to take distant research credits as many as I could manage while working. I have one more paper to go, six more credits to finish and all I have one Spring and a busy Summer left.

My goal is to win streak for cash. iDumb you should start playing this game. You have a better chance of winning this than the lottery. You have to make 27 correct picks in a row for all sorts of games- basketball, football, american football, volleyball, golf, sometimes even cricket. If you get 27 picks on a row right you win the stash for the month, which starts at 50K, and every month when someone doesn't win they keep adding 50K to the previous balance.

hmm 27 in a row... considering two teams playing the probability of getting one result right is 1/2
so probability of getting 27 right is = (1/2) * (1/2) * (1/2)... = 1/134,217,734 or .000000745%

Resolutions are kept for about a month or so, then you forgot you ever made any. I don't have any at the moment. I might come up with something by Jan. hmmm lets see maybe drink more water, cut down on pop/soda. Yeah...that is all for now. I will add to the list if I can come up with something I can actually keep.

You definitely have some stamina. I definitely would not have finished had I joined the workforce before finishing.

Funny how most people have this goal and mostly fail to achieve it (speaking from personal experience). Good luck

Well, dieting and excercise go hand in hand.
Breakfast must be Special K / fruits only like a banana+an orange
Lunch should be Tuna topped salad
Snacks should be fruits again
Dinner should be 1 plate rice ( not loaded sky high ) , a lil bit of bhajee, torkari and daal.
Chicken should be the only meat you eat. No ice creams or pastries or cakeor samosas either!

And, make sure you go to gym twice a week and do simple home excercises every day.

OMG... you are not married yet and you are already 34"? What is going to happen if you manage to get married in 2013? It will be 42".

You better change your target to 28" before you get married, that willl give you some buffer to eat freely in your Shosurbari without any reservation.

if you want to lose weight, I would suggest few more:

- eat more protein in the morning
- decent lunch but light dinner with less starch and the dinner should be early.
- fruits are always good as long as you don't have sugar issue.

Bottom line "moderation" whatever you eat....
