2014 Resolution Progress Report

Less than 2 month to go in the year of 2014. Time to take a look at the goals I have for the year and the progress I made so far. Here is the list of the goals I have for 2014:

  • Paddleboard to Keelung Isle
  • Trip to Taroko Gorge
  • Hike 6 more Taiwan 100 Top Peaks
  • Save 3,000 USD (100,000 NTD)
  • Learn Archery
  • Lead Climb 5.11a
  • Over night biking trip
  • Improve Language Ability (Take Japanese or Spanish Lesson)

While I have done quite of few of them but there are still many more to go… Now I really need to set priority to archive the ones that matters the most to me. Here are the ones I have yet to accomplish:

  • Lead Climb 5.11a
  • Hike 6 more Taiwan 100 Top Peaks
  • Learn Archery
  • Over night biking trip

Out of the 8, I got 4 left… We will see how many more I could knock out.

Friendship and Trust

I push myself to be a man of words, to be trustworthy and reliable. I set a high standard to myself, to be on time and to keep my promises. There is a saying in Chinese, “be strict to yourself and be tolerant to the others.” Lately, I have found it difficult to hang out or even, talk to the people I call friends. It frustrates me when they constantly let me down on the small things. Some might say, sure, but they will step up when it truly matters. I don’t know, it is hard to believe in that when one can’t even deliver in a smaller scale.

Trust can be easily broken but hard to rebuild. I couldn’t just trust a person who has failed me many times just by the word the person said. Words are merely words until they are backed up by actions.

I am tired from all these empty promises people make. I feel trust is the most important thing between two friends. If I can’t trust the person, I don’t know if we can still be friends.

I pray to you, Rita, to give me strength, to get over this low time of my life.
