I've been making the same resolution for over 20 years, and I've succeeded every year.

Instead of resolving to NOT do something, or to NOT eat something, I resolve to DO something.

I resolve to do something, ANYTHING new this or any year.

Here is my reasoning:

When you resolve to NOT do something you are basically giving yourself a chance for failure each and every day. Imagine failing on Dec 31st?

When I resolve to do something new, I have the entire year to succeed. I can succeed on day 1 or day 365/6, and there is no specific thing required. All I have to do is do anything new.

Since I adopted this process I don't have any regrets, grief or issues because of a failed resolution. In other words, I'm a lot happier!

 

Hope you all have a HAPPY 2020!!!

PSA from the Fakebook:

 

If you signing / dating anything important write out the whole year. If you just write 1/1/20 someone can easily change it to 1/1/2017 or any year since 2000.

 

Only resolution I have is to keep working on the A1C. Have been slacking the last few months.
