Hope For The New Year

Buy Me a Coffee at ko-fi.com

As the new year of תשפ״ד comes closer and we find ourselves in the month on אלול. My resolutions for Elul through עשרת ימי תשובה:

  1. Wake up and daven with a minyan early
    1. Go to bed by 23:00
    2. On days when I’m not davening on the train, daven with a minyan at 7 a.m. or earlier
    3. On days when davening I’m on the train, get the train that leaves a 7:46 a.m.
    4. Before davening, don’t waste time watching movies, listening to podcasts, etc.
  2. Read from a mussar sefer for at least 10 minutes a day.
    1. Ideally, the mussar should be related to waking up early / davening
  3. Keep up with daf hayomi everyday during this period.
    1. Don’t rely on making up days on Shabbos etc
    2. If it takes less then 1 hour to learn the whole daf with Rashi, either learn תוספות or review to complete at least 1 hour of learning day.
  4. Be מחזק in last years resolution not to lie.
    1. Be מחזק in trying to avoid lying
    2. Take note of all lies, embellishments, or obfuscations said over a day. Even subtle ones.
    3. Write down the tally in obsidian and a spreadsheet at the end of the day.

May we all merit to כתיבה וחתימה טובה for the coming year 5784!
