Today I am thankful for New Year’s resolutions.
I consider it a very good thing anytime we take a look at ourselves and see what we need to change to become better.
The start of a fresh, unsoiled, year seems to be the ideal time to set goals and targets for how we will make this year the best year ever!
But how often do we actually follow through on our lofty New Year’s resolutions?
I think we make our goals too distant that we feel we have the entire year to complete. That year long timetable creates no hurry to get our resolutions finished.
The only resolution that I can remember successfully completing was the year I told myself that I wanted to learn to juggle.
Similar to the AT&T commercial where the kid says his New Year’s “revolution” is to eat more jelly beans, learning to juggle was fun, but it probably wasn’t the most heartfelt resolution.
I don’t have a resolution set for this year yet, but whatever it ends up being I am going to give it a short deadline (or make it jelly bean related).
What are some of your New Year’s resolutions? Let me know if the comments section below.
