One Resolution Only
“I think I’ve tried it all. I have tried making New Year’s resolutions of the kind you’re supposed to do them: Do more exercise. (accomplished). Finish the never ending project in my garage (well, almost). Eat less chocolate (just kidding!)…
While this is entertaining in the beginning and even provides some incentive to do things, there is still that feeling of pointlessness. Why would I need to make such resolutions at the beginning of a new year. Why do I actually have to make resolutions? Could I not just do it without such pompous declaration?
I also tried deliberately not making any resolutions, claiming that I don’t believe in them. I might argue, however, that making the resolution of not making resolutions kind of defeats the object. Maybe I should make resolutions and promise that i will not stick to them?”
