We’re just over a week into the new year. Are you still on track with all those New Year’s Resolutions–or have they already fallen by the wayside?
This time each year always brings to mind this quote by Mark Twain:
New Year’s Day–Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual. Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink, and swore his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever. We shall also reflect pleasantly upon how we did the same old thing last year about this time.
Does it apply to you–or are you on your way to a new you in 2014? As for me, I’m still on track–not that I have much of a track to be on. I haven’t gone to the gym (I’m waiting until everyone else lets their resolutions slide and there’s not a line for the treadmill & the elliptical), but I have been working out at home, getting back into a workout routine with T-Tapp. I’m spending more time writing–that is definitely a good thing, and putting plans in place for some of the other things I want to accomplish this year. I will confess that I don’t make grand new resolutions each year, but I do review my goals and see what I need to tweak, change or dump to keep moving forward in my life.
And just in case you’re wondering how you stack up with the rest of the world, I found this entertaining infographic about the most common–and most commonly broken–New Year’s Resolutions.
Are your goals for 2014 on either of these lists?
