Resolve to make no resolutions this new year, or any other “new” year. It’s an exercise in futility. Why? Because if you feel a “resolution” is the necessary impetus to initiate the changes you deem important, then you’re already in arrears. A resolution is nothing more than a well-intentioned promise that you voice. Specific action should precede any proclamation.
The root word of resolution is resolute, which means admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering. Someone truly resolute about making changes does not delay it, nor announce it only at the beginning of a new year.
Any good intentions to improve or grow should be incorporated year round, and not be tied to some specific date on the calendar. There’s nothing more magical about January 1st than July 1st, or October 31st. Any “magic” happenings typically occur outside of one’s comfort zone on any various date.
Good intentions don’t pay the bills. It’s about action over apprehension.
SHUN the resolution…
Agree or disagree; just no apathy.
Happy New Year!
