Our Reflections And Goals Roadmap For 2021
Dr. Anna Krendler, Dentist
“My New Year’s resolution is to live in balance. It’s very easy to tip the balance between work, health, play, and loved ones that we forget sometimes. It’s important to stabilize the energy you put into these various aspects of your life. Ever since Covid happened, it has been an eye-opening experience for me. I discovered I should focus more on the health aspect, both mentally and physically.”

How did you do at achieving your goals for 2020?
“I believe I achieved a lot of the goals I set for this year. I try to set goals that are realistic but also know that it is something I really want to achieve and willing to put the effort in. They are combination of things I am truly passionate about and want to achieve. Once you really want something that is important to you, working towards those goals and achieving them becomes easier.”
What were you aiming for and what did you do to get there?
“One thing I wanted to do was to stay positive and accept things that are out of my control. For instance, accepting our current life with COVID and making the best of what we have at this time, made this past year easier than it could have been. Here is one publication I have written in early spring during the first wave for the OD dentist journal regarding how to stay sane during trying times in case you are interested to read. Some points may still apply.”

“I wanted to continue being an advocate for greener living to help save our planet from the hazards of plastic pollution. Thus I continue to do whatever I can, to advocate and help inspire others to do the same. I’ve been doing that by raising awareness and giving alternative solutions to plastic waste through informative and motivational lectures, publications, and by making videos on my youtube channel (Alida Eco).
The key to being able to put so much volunteer work towards this goal is because it is following my passion, what you believe in and not caring for the outcome but the process. It doesn’t matter how many people will watch, read or listen to what I have produced or done, but knowing that I am doing what I love and believe in, and enjoying the process of doing it, it’s my driving force.”
What is your 2021 resolution?
“The same goes for this year’s resolution and achievements. I believe in order to get to where we want to be, we need to do the best we can, but also to follow our hearts. We need to accept that every success – whether it is to better at our job, going to the gym or being a better parent, partner or friend – takes effort. And there will be days that we feel we are stuck and have failed, but we just need to continue trying and not give up. Because no true success comes without previous failures.”
