Pre-New Year's Resolutions

OK, so we know that probably 99 % of our New Year's resolutions won't make it through the month of January. That is why I am making Pre-New Year's resolutions. I figure if I can get a head start and a little practice before the real thing, maybe I will do a better job at achieving my goals.

Because, in reality, that is what New Year's resolutions should be - Goals.

How many times have we sat down and wrote out that list, only to watch every one of those goals turn into nothing more than wishes. Wishes that we don't have the heart or discipline to turn back into goals.

So, here, in the middle of December, let's write out our Pre-New Year's resolutions. Then on January 1, let's re-examine the list and be realistic. Are they goals or are they wishes? If they are not goals, don't spend any time feeling guilty about not working on them. Instead, find that one goal that tugs at your heart and fires your determination and go for it!
