A moments reflection about the absurdity of new years resolutions awakens my senses and arouses my demand for more resolutions every day.
How many people wait a year and wait for tonight to make a change in their life? How many people actually follow through with their resolutions?(there must be some kind of statistic on this)
My guess is not many follow their new years resolutions, whether it be to lose weight, make more money, or work harder in school.
I have not yet made a new years resolution but tonight I will for the first time.
How absurd is it to wait a year to SUDDENLY make a change in ones life at 12:00am?-For the sake of a culture who cherishes and labels this holiday as a time to make a resolution?
Oh now lets make a change the time is right, it’s new years eve! Lets wait a year to create a goal.
Meanwhile, the advertisements kick in showing commercials about weight loss supplements, weight watchers, special TV programming, etc. Exploiting this holiday because they know people are going to make new years resolutions and want answers. The advertisements usually feed off of consumers fears and irrational ideals.
Why not make goals frequently? Why wait a year to make the “Big Change?”
My first and last new years resolution is simply “Create goals more frequently such as every month; Short and long term goals year round!”
Geeee who would have thunk it?
Do effective people wait a year at 12:00 to create one goal? I doubt it. They probably do it year round.
2005 here I come. *To wait a year to take another step is only going to get you as far as the end of your block.
How far can you travel if you take a step every day or every month? Perhaps out of the state? What would happen if you ran? What would happen if you were to fly?
I’m out to go party, peace T-nation and welcome to a new year.
“How far do you want to travel this year? To the end of your block or to outer space and back?”
