I have completed writing my 2015 New Year’s Resolutions!
What? Yes, you read that right. No, no, I haven’t finished my resolutions, I just wrote them down. And no, I did not mean to say that I've written an advance draft for the 2016 resolutions. Yes, I do know that it's August and that 2015 started eight months ago. Yes, I do know that we are on day 230 of the year 2015. Yes, I understand this means that 2015 is therefore 230/365ths or 63% complete already.
Look at it this way: tomorrow is a new day. The beginning of the rest of my life. Surely you’ve seen the bumper stickers?
Also, I needed this post for evidence. I've been threatened with a life ban from the Procrastinators' Club (which of course has yet to be formally established but will be finalized any day now), and I had to do something about it immediately!
Hmm. That might have been part of their point. Perhaps I'll send a note saying that I have rebuttal evidence here somewhere and if they'll just give me an extension, I'm sure I'll get to it...
So anyway, how are your New Year’s Resolutions coming along?
If you didn’t write any, it’s not too late. Specific measurable goals make you more likely to achieve things you want to achieve. And! Since the year is 63% complete, it's totally cool to make at least 63% of your resolutions be stuff you’ve already done.
