One perpetual resolution of mine — at New Year’s and pretty much any time — is to get more organized. Above is a perfect example of how my reality typically turns out… important reminders get written on a sticky note and then stuck to my computer monitor where I will be sure to see them, remember them, and act on them. Regrettably, I get so used to seeing the stickies that I no longer notice them.
With the new year waiting in the wings, this is the time that I’m naturally thinking about the year that is passing and how I’d like to improve and change in the year to come. I’m not entirely convinced that resolutions are the best approach, as much as a more perpetual drive to improve oneself and one’s lot in life. … But help me out here… Have you ever “resolved” something at New Years and had it work for you? What was it and what did you do to make it work for you? Do you have traditions for New Years that are meant to inspire a prosperous New Year?
I’d love to hear from you on this!
