What is the one thing about New Year’s Resolutions that make them so hard to keep? In my opinion, it’s the monotonous effort of the same thing day in day out for weeks on end. Due to the drudgery of these endeavours, we eventually get tempted to cheat, skip a day, or just forget, and thus the resolution breaks down into another failed effort.
So what can be done? Well, in my travels around the web, I recently found the BecauseISaidIWould site, with the idea of doing one promise (or resolution) per week. This concept resonated with me, and thus the idea for this 52 Resolutions site was born.
My aim in the coming weeks of 2013 is to do just one simple thing per week, (somewhat) randomly chosen, in order to both prevent procrastination and actually achieve something worthwhile with the year. After all, just one thing a week should be easy enough!
Wish me luck…
