In a little over two months, we will be crossing over to a new decade. The year 2020 will dawn upon us, whether we are ready or not. Right now, we are not just at the tail-end of the year, but a decade. Looking at it this way helps put things in perspective just how fast time flies.
It felt like it was only recently that we welcomed 2010 and it didn’t feel all that long ago that we entered the 2000s, as we were then busy bracing ourselves for any potential fallout from the Millennium Bug. Many of those born at the turn of the millennium are already in universities or have joined the workforce.
I always hear people lamenting about how little they had achieved as the year draws to a close. Their new year’s resolution had long been abandoned. These are usually the same people who complain about how little time they have.
The truth is, everyone gets 24 hours in a day. It’s a matter of how well we prioritise our to-do list. If we choose to take a laid-back attitude in working towards our dreams, we only have ourselves to blame if we don’t achieve them. Because in no time, 2021 and then, the turn of a new decade, will be here. We don’t want to complain again then that we had not achieved much – that is, if we actually make it through those dates.
