I don’t get New Year’s resolutions. I mean, yeah, I get it: It’s a new year, so it’s a new beginning. What I mean is I don’t get why people keep falling for it. How many of your New Year’s resolutions did you keep last year? How many of them were the same resolutions you’d made the year before, and probably the year before that? We always say we’re going to eat healthier, exercise more, drink less, quit smoking, put more into savings, finally learn French, blah, blah, blah. Somehow it seems to work out that way just about never.
Intent is nothing without action, but we’re creatures of habit. And most of us have a lazy streak that is only too easy to embrace. Try not to feel too bad about it — it’s just the way we’re built. We know what we should do, but convincing ourselves to put forth the effort is just too much.
