No Resolutions!


Thursday, December 31, 2009

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.

emoticonWho 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.

    The word Resolution doesn't inspire, and I don't use that word, but I do use New Year's day to remind and recommit myself to my Goals. I just try to challenge myself to go a little further/push a little harder towards something. Last year I began adding something to my life, rather trying to give something up. Maybe that's just semantics in the end, but it made me feel better about it, anyway! :) Best of luck to you in the New Year! (love your Snoopys, btw)

    I haven't had much luck with New Year Resolutions.

When I set shorter term goals, they're always too ambitious, and I rebel against my own plans, and then I fail.



I've had better luck with longer-range goals like New Decade Resolutions. I rocked my climbing 20s, rolled my settled-down 30s, and I'm going to polish my 40s!
