I read a post today by Amber Naslund called The Brass Tacks of Resolutions. Amber basically states that while making resolutions can be a really good exercise, the downside is that we all tend to make resolutions knowing full-well that we’ll be done with them by President’s Day. And there will be no repercussions.
I’ve been thinking about this and of course, there isn’t much you can argue with there. It happens to me every year. Sometimes I make it till February or March. But then the Cadbury eggs show up in the grocery stores. The days start to get a bit longer and a bit warmer. And away we go.
I would say it’s my resolution not to let that happen in 2011, but that would just be too deliciously…apropos.
So I came up with another idea instead.
Every Sunday night (Running a bit late this week), I’m going to post a couple of goals that I have for that week. Just that week. You can either play along with those goals or let everyone know what you’re up to. And we’ll see how we do. You can comment here, start your own string of posts on your blog, or if you want to keep track on Twitter, let’s use #1weekres.
Every Sunday night will be like New Year’s Eve. What could be better than that!?
So this week, my 2 big goals are to comment on 3 blogs I’ve never commented on before and to get together a big load of stuff that I can donate to Goodwill.
What are you up to?
