New Year’s resolutions? Bah, Humbug! Ebenezer Scrooge might say. Meriam-Webster Dictionary agrees. (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/humbug) Resolutions are like humbug ―misleading or deceptive. Statistics say 92% of resolutions fail. Looking on the bright side, that’s an 8% success rate. Even the U.S. government website gets in on the action with the most popular resolutions. (http://www.usa.gov/Citizen/Topics/New-Years-Resolutions.shtml)
Resolution #1 in the U.S. is “Lose Weight.” Somewhere beneath that will be “Join Gym,” followed by “Better Education,” or “Better Job.” If you haven’t made a 2015 list yet, try my top four suggestions.
Lose Weight.Enjoy chocolate. Join Gym. Walk around the block and greet neighbors. Better Education. First, teach others to see the learning process. Better Job: Improve present job (paid or voluntary).
A few years ago when I accomplished only a few of my New Year’s resolutions, I made a new resolution. I’ve topped all the odds. I’ve been 100% successful.
Stop making New Year’s resolutions.
