Resolving Resolutions…

As we approach 2013 I’m sure there are many who are coming up with their list of New Year Resolutions – I’m even more sure these resolutions will be forgotten as quickly as the confetti is swept up in Manhattan.

Resolutions don’t work, like “fox hole” prayers they are done in a state of panic. People are dissatisfied about what they didn’t do or become in the previous year. So its understandable when given a clean slate or a fresh start we make a list of things we want to resolve.

What we need to realize is New Years Day is the day after December 31st, it isn’t any different from March 3rd! If we don’t live with inspiration and a thirst for knowledge and contribution we will remain dissatisfied with what we see as our accomplishments or to put it or plainly OUR SELVES…

We can’t change because of a day. We change because of a desire to be and do better and this is done through goal setting and careful planning. Focusing on the end – May I suggest you either read or reread one of the many incarnations of Stephen R. Covey’s 7 Habits books. This alone will resolve your need for resolutions…

Happy January 1st!
