I don't make New Year's resolutions, do you? Instead, I make a list of goals that I'd like to meet sometime during the year. Sometimes my ambition gets 'way ahead of my energy and ability, but why not try anyway? Who knows what can be accomplished if we only try.
With that in mind, here are a few of my goals for this year:
Lose weght, exercise more and save more money.
Oops. Those are not on my list, but they are on the list of a great many people. Those three things are the top New Year's resolutons and the top three that get broken. Maybe it's because we're not specific about it. It's one thing to want to lose weight. It's another to lose 10 pounds each month for three months by cutting out the soft drinks and chips and walking five times a week.
Or how about resolving to save more money? Is it there to save? I have seen very, very few people who couldn't save a little more and they were homeless. Most of us can eliminate things and cut back on others to save a little more. How much? You have to answer that, too. Where will you put it? When?
I kind of lied... two of the items I listed really are on my list. I'm not telling which two, though.
