           I really like this essay–setting up personal systems for shaping our lives is so much more effective than setting goals and making “resolutions.” Since I am in the middle of a move, I find it especially helpful. You may or may not find the specific approach helpful–what is important is the fundamental idea of a personal system rather than a list of goals. Check it out!

I have long been fascinated by concepts from Asian cultures that force us to rethink our own narrow traditions from Western thought. The idea of the self is one of these and the Japanese concept of “kokoro” offers a more open and creative approach to defining who and what we are. Enjoy this fascinating essay from Quartz. The featured images are from the ever-wonderful Buddha Doodles.

          I have never been a great believer in lists of goals or New Year’s resolutions–they just don’t work for me. Quartz offers in this article a brilliant alternative, a way to set up your personal systems so they work for you. Take some time this weekend to see if this might be a good idea for you to try!
