Resolutions? I Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Resolutions!

The Thought for the Day on January 3rd said the following:

I once listed all the good things I did over the past year, and then turned them into resolution form and backdated them.  That was a good feeling.                                  — Robert Fulghum

That sounds appealing, because I’ve never really liked resolutions.  They’re so heavy and almost have Failure written into them (or at least implied).

I noted in a New Years Eve Tweet the I didn’t need resolutions.  My weekly and daily lists would get me there.  I’ve found that lists work for me when I’m trying to get things done.  (And for some reason, the more things on the list the better I am at completing the list. 🙂 )

So, the only (little-R) resolution I’m making this year is to keep the spiral notebook front & center throughout the day, every day.
