Resolutions

Resolution


When I see or hear this word on its own I think of two words.

Quality and discipline.

At the beginning of a year, thousands of people make New Year’s Resolutions:

Health, wealth, relationships, travel, business, life change of some sort.

And a photographer determines and captures the detail in an image:

Hence, the term for image resolution, pixels and all.

Quality and discipline. The two go hand in hand, somehow.


Year after year our New Year’s resolution list grows or repeats but with growth and repetition, a photographer improves. The image resolution or quality sharpens. The discipline for editing, focusing, assembling and learning the technology turns into passion and even habit. There’s an internal drive to keep learning, improving and mastering the art.


Is it the same with life?

Are our resolutions created from inspiration and motivation…

or hype and trends?

What drives us for that quality of life? And how do we create it?


A life of quality is the result of a life of discipline.

From athletes to artists, farmers to scholars, and business-people to stay-at-home parents, discipline is a daily implementation. It sounds specific and strategic but I promise, it’s not.

Self-discipline, self-control, self-esteem, and so on, is practiced.

As a friend once said, practice doesn’t make perfect – practice makes permanent.
