GM 2023

Not your average new year post

User avatar


Okay, I need to start writing because holy shit. I am sick and tired of saying I will do this or that. That is not the life I want to live. Over the past couple of months, I have had to ask myself that question: what is the life I want to live?

Now, this is not one of those new years posts where I will tell you all my goals and commitments. I am not writing this because it's the start of the new year. I have zero fucks to give to 2023.

Millions of people promise themselves that they will start a diet or begin their fitness journey. I chose not to create these goals for myself. They are meaningless since I probably won't meet them. The one thing that I would like to promise myself is the following: I will listen to myself more.

What does it mean to listen to myself?

Well, I don't know what that looks like yet. If I am hungry, I will eat. If I am tired, I will sleep. If I am sad, I will talk to myself. If I want to get fit, I will work out. If I want to be happier, I will take action to be happier. I am in charge of my fate. Listening to myself is what I believe will enable me to value who I am and what I think honestly.

I don't think I will achieve every single goal in 2023. I don't think I need to achieve any goal to be truly happy. If I can practice listening to myself, I believe this will lead me in the right direction.

I am tired of saying that I will do things. I am going to stop saying and start doing. If you see me, take action, it means I am listening to myself. I hope you follow me on this journey. I am as excited as I am scared.

The show will go on. Life will continue. Juan will continue to push.

My goals

Although my main goal is to listen to myself, I have more definitive goals that I would like to pursue.

Nothing has been thought out entirely, but I thought I would share. Again, I want to emphasize that I can give no fucks about these goals if I don't achieve my one main goal.

There you have it, my first GM New Year post. I do hope I can continue this tradition. It would be nice to see my mental models, thoughts, emotions, and writing improve over the years.

Happy New Year! GM 2023.
