It’s a new year – according to the calendar. That means it’s time to look at the goals, set new ones, re-evaluate old ones, and decide what I’m going to be working on this year. I do goals, not resolutions. Why? Because I’ve fallen into the resolution trap a few too many times. You know the one where you make a nearly impossible resolution like “I’m going to run a mile every day” when you haven’t run more than three steps without losing your breath. Then on January 2nd it’s so cold the weather guys are warning everyone to stay inside and not even run to the car. Well that’s it, resolution broken already, time to get back to some serious couch potatoing and so much for that resolution.
We did it. We survived another year and have made it to this (rather arbitrary) day we call the first day of the new year. Really any day would have done for it, so long as we all agree that it’s the first day. So there you have it, we’ve agreed that it’s a new year. We’ve also agreed to call this year 2013. We’re off to a good start.
