I never make New Year’s resolutions. If I want to do something then I’ll just start doing it. (This explains why I started recording my steps with a pedometer on April 4, 2007 and why I started photo Project 365 on October 24, 2006.) If I’m not really committed to doing something then it certainly won’t make a difference to start it on January 1.
But yesterday, I got some resolutions handed to me nonetheless. I was at a New Year’s Eve party and everyone was asked to write down their resolutions and put them in a hat. Then we went around and drew resolutions.
Here is what I got:
Eat More Green things (and by green, I don’t mean moldy)
Make more stuff
I get the first one and I’m happy to give it a go. I’ve already had some edamame today to comply.
But what does the second one mean? Does writing a book count as making stuff? Or should I be setting up shop at Etsy?
I’m curious, those of you who make New Year’s resolutions, what’s the longest you’ve managed to stay on track? Anyone go a whole year? Any interesting attempts this time around?
