This time of year, one question always comes up when a crowd of people gather. "What's your New Year's Resolution?" It's an easy one for me to answer. Mine is the same it's always been: To have no New Year's Resolution.
What's so special about Jan 1 anyway? Only 8% of people end up keeping their resolutions, so maybe we should make commitments when feel motivated and not when the calendar declares it's time.
If you want to exercise more, wouldn't March 3rd work just as well? You could even buy a used treadmill from one of those people whose New Year's Resolution didn't work out so swell.
"Get organized" is another popular resolution. Come on, if you haven't done it by now, do you really think '08 is going to be any better?
Give up sweets? Why don't you just wait til, well, never, cause chocolate is good for you and hey, is life really worth living without it?
"Enjoy life more". Do we really need to set a goal for this? Goals equal pressure, and pressure equals stress, and stress equals, well, not enjoying life more.
I'm all for lists. Shoot, I live by lists, but the New Year's Resolution list is one that's going to stay blank for me. That's my resolution.
