Forget 2005, Meet 2006

Okay. It’s been 5 days past the New Year and I haven’t said a word in here. So what I’m going to say right here, as usually what people will says, Happy New Year. I know it’s a bit late but I heard some people still have the Christmas mood even until this day.

By the way, I have read sally’s blog (in Chinese) and she wrote about her 2005 review. 2005 wasn’t a good year for her but for me, I seem to forget what had happen in 2005 except those which are written in my blog. This brings up one topic that I would like to discuss it here which is forgetfulness.

I have a friend who reminds me about something that normally people shouldn’t forget. Somehow, I just can’t remember it. Example, the coming Tuesday was holiday. Everybody knows it and I know it too. However, when I said to my friend that I’m going to come back work on that Tuesday, she laughed at me. (There are some other cases too, as you see, I forgot. Hahaha)

Well, I have a habit of, when I recall something I need to get it done, I will start doing it right away; or at least jot it down into my PDA for it to remind me. The good thing about this was, it eliminates procrastination and it helps me to get things done eventually. As for things that cannot be done straight away or it wasn’t jot down in the PDA, usually it was those not urgent and not important things.

With this practice, it can be used for personal advantages. Here are some examples I can think off currently

1. forget rejections/humiliation
This one is especially for the guys. If you can master this skill, you either become rich or popular with girls.

2. forget mistake done by self or others.
Life goes on. Time should spend thinking what’s coming ahead instead staying in the past. That’s why I didn’t do well in my history subject. :P

3. forget pain
No pain no gain. Forget the pain; you will sure get a lot of gain. :D

4. forget gossip
That’s how you can keep your friend’s secret, so they can keep on telling. :D

Finally, I think there are tons of stuff we need to remember (e.g. brush your teeth every morning) and I believe it is okay to forget some of it because your family or friends can help you by remembering them for you.
