I don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions. I mean, I do them – every year I write myself a long letter (at varying degrees of soberness), seal it, and lock it away until I read it a year later (at varying degrees of drunkenness) to have a laugh.
But rarely do I follow them because they set you up for failure. I have to keep them for 12 Whole Months – that just seems doomed. So instead this year I gave myself a month off – January – to see what I wanted to do, what I could do. It’s much less pressure to think that I could stick to something for 92% of the year instead of 100%. That’s all still an A, right?
So, without further ado, here are the things I want to get done in the next 92% of 2013:
- Stop eating fast food – STAT
- No more gluten – lots of different types of flour to cook with
- Writing in this blog – once every two weeks is the plan
- No Procrastinating! (the only reason this made the cut is because I’ve actually been able to do it for the last month – I never saw this one coming)
- Learn social media marketing
- Keep writing – self-publish two books this year (one is already written but one needs to be decided on, stat)
- Clean my house – I really, REALLY, need to start putting things away.
- Be Happy! (This one is harder – but may be the most important.)
So world, this is my plan for the next 92% of 2013. I know a lot of people who have had quite a rotten January so far (the dreadful 8%) but buck up – that’s not even enough to turn an A year into a B, maybe an A- but hey, no one pays attention to the signs anyway. 🙂
