Do you make resolutions? I think they are a bad idea.
The word resolution implies perfection. And any changes imply Failure. If you Fail you want to give up.
Who among us is perfect? Who lives a perfect life? Does nothing unusual ever happen?
The dog never rolls in something, gets sick, bolts after a squirrel? You never get any urgent calls from friends or family? (and have to alter your plans) You only get sick on schedule? Etc,Etc. Resolutions FAIL,…..
Do make Plans and Decisions. Plans and decisions can be modified to suit the circumstances. If you can’t exercise Monday morning because Mom calls and needs to go to the doctor. Then, you exercise Tuesday instead. You didn’t fail, you altered your plan. YOU ROLLED WITH THE PUNCHES! You did great, you are winning.
If you don’t stick to plan 100% (we are all human), it has not failed. More important, you haven’t failed, and can continue from where you are at.
Happy New Year!
Remember plans can start anytime. So, if you don’t start yours January 1st, there are 364 more days in 2010.
Smile and Laugh Everyday!
