Manic Monday #46

 
CanadaQuestion #1 - What is the biggest mistake you made in 2008 and will not make again in 2009?
Not taking good care of myself, especially when I am on the road. In the first half of this year, I would make sure that I ate healthier food, and also that I booked a hotel with either a gym or a pool (or both). Then I would make the time to use them. But I could not do that in the last few months, partly due to the nature of my job, but also because I was a lazy slob.
 
Question #2 – Do you make New Year's resolutions? Why or why not?
I don’t make New Year’s resolutions anymore. They just don’t make sense to me. Am I going to change my behaviour radically just because it’s January 1st? That’s a lame excuse. If the change comes from within, it’s going to work. If not… I can say whatever I want at midnight, but I will have failed by 11:00 AM that same day.
 
Question #3 – Who do you nominate as “Man or Woman of the Year” for 2008?
I guess the only one who would qualify as “Man or Woman” is Michael Jackson, but I know that’s not what I’m being asked here. I guess the obvious choice for “Man of the Year” would be Barack Obama, and the “Woman of the Year” could be… Tina Fey?
 
Question #4 – What was your greatest accomplishment in 2008?
It’s all related to my job. I think I have had the most successful year of my career, travelling all over the globe, taking on a lot of responsibility and being successful in every project I worked on. I earned respect and recognition from my colleagues. I just hope that the people that should notice all this did!
 
 
ArgentinaPregunta #1 – Cuál es el error más grande que hayas cometido en 2008 y no cometerás en 2009?
No haberme cuidado lo suficientemente bien, sobre todo cuando estuve de viaje. Durante la primera parte del año, yo me aseguré de comer más sano, y también de buscar hoteles con gimnasio o pileta (o ambos). Me hacía el tiempo para utilizarlos también. Pero no pude hacer lo mismo en la última parte del año, un poco por la naturaleza del trabajo que hago y otro poco de puro holgazán.
 
Pregunta #2 – Haces resoluciones de Año Nuevo? Por qué o por qué no?
No, ya hace tiempo que no. No le veo el sentido. Yo no voy a cambiar radicalmente mi comportamiento sólo porque un papel dice que es Primero de Enero. Es una excusa ‘berreta’ (de mala calidad, en Argentina). Si el cambio viene de dentro de mí, entonces va a funcionar, pero si no es así… Puedo prometer lo que quiera a medianoche, que para las 11:00 AM ya voy a haber fallado.
 
Pregunta #3 – A quién nominarías como “Hombre o Mujer del Año” para 2008?
Creo que la única persona que califica como “Hombre o Mujer” es Michael Jackson, pero sé que no es lo que se me pregunta aquí. Me parece que la elección obvia para “Hombre del Año” sería Barack Obama, y la “Mujer del Año” podría ser… Tina Fey?
 
Pregunta #4 – Cuál fue tu más grande logro en 2008?
Mi desempeño en el trabajo. Creo que he tenido el mejor año de toda mi carrera, viajando por todo el mundo, tomando responsabilidades muy grandes y teniendo éxito en cada proyecto en que trabajé. Me gané el respeto y reconocimiento de mis colegas. Espero que aquellos que deberían tomar nota de todo esto lo hayan hecho!

  3. I haven't been taking good care of myself either. This year has been a turbulent one, and I put diet and exercise on the back burner. While it's not an official resolution, I am going to try to eat better starting ASAP!It sounds like you had a successful year indeed, and I wish you more of the same in the upcoming year!On an unrelated note (and at the risk of sounding ungrateful for the link love! :S), I noticed that the link you have to my blog was made to a specific post rather than the homepage. I just thought I'd bring that to your attention. I really appreciate the link, and it's nice to have another connection in the blogosphere!

  4. You're right, Katie!!! I'm so sorry... and the problem is that Blogrolling.com is not working properly these days, so it will take me some time to fix this. :-(
