ALIGN2021: My 2021 New Year's Resolution

In 2019, I set out a goal of establishing a freelance life — I succeeded.

For 2020, I wanted it to be a year of nourishing my inner self — I succeeded.

And for 2021, I want to be a year of aligning my actions with my values.

Why ALIGN2021?

I realised an incongruity between my real-life persona and online persona.

It's not that I'm dishonest with any of them but they don't often gel together.

I know that people are often a heightened version of themselves online. That's okay and sometimes necessary.

But what bugged me was not bringing the conversation I've had online to the real world.

See, when I'm with my family, relatives or dance friends, I don't often talk about veganism or climate change. I don't want to be preachy.

And I'm not sure if I'm fully walking the talk.

So this year I'm going to periodically check my actions and whether they align with my values.

I want to walk rather than talk and show rather than tell.

How You Can Align Your Actions With Your Values

The simple steps are as follows:

  1. Figure out your value

  3. List down the possible actions that would uphold the value

  4. Observe current actions and determine if they align with your value
