happy new year

i was at a soirée tonight where the idea of new year's resolutions was being contemplated. Are they a good idea?, asked one person. Another responded that she thought they were idiotic because no one ever keeps their resolutions and that in fact, the whole idea of setting them in relation to a calendar year is silly. Someone else said that he didn't make resolutions but identified a few goals for the year or intentions.

I too have stopped making resolutions. That doesn't mean I lack goals. My to-do list is captured in the sidebar on the right side of this page. It just means, behavior change without a goal is hard, and making resolutions to start every morning with 100 sit ups is bound to lead to failure and disappointment.

Happy New Year! Did you make resolutions, set goals, or intentions for the year?
