Three months to go
We may argue that the year is still young, but with only about three months to go, one may say otherwise. For some who have procrastinated their yearly plans, it is now a race against time as they try to pull all strings to keep the promises they once made.
It has become a routine that people commit to achieve things they deem to contribute either to their self-improvement or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people from the beginning of January. Those who are guided by the power of writing things down have their plans on walls or a book hidden somewhere while other chose to commit to an abstract course.
Saying what one intends to achieve by the end of the year is easier said than done. Some who were loud on their promises throughout the year have now been silenced by the dawn of time. As the sun set, they have gone mute while their confidants are now looking into ways of postponing their resolutions to 2017. On the other hand, those who have mastered the art of commitment to the course are about to celebrate meeting what was once just a promise.
While it may be true that time is money, we have so much time and so little to do. “Many people will always complain that time flies and as such they will not achieve everything they want in such a small time period. But in the same time, others get to do all what they planned to do so it is actually just about one being committed to the course. But we still have three months to do things we promised to ourselves. it is not too late,” said young Joseph Ndaifanwa.
The Lounge caught up with a few Namibian personalities to ask how they have been keeping up with the New Year’s Resolutions and how they intend to use the remaining three months.
