I’ve always been one of those people who didn’t make resolutions. General betterment was always the goal. Nothing too specific to hold myself to. Can’t say for sure whether that approach ever really worked for. Here I am approaching the end of 2011 and I realize that specificity might actually be the key to betterment or, at the very least, nixing some behaviors I know I am guilty of.
So here goes, my resolutions for 2012 – for real:
- I will stop texting, emailing, tweeting and Facebooking while I am driving. Nothing is so important that it cannot wait.
- I will find a way to dance more. Dancing makes me happy.
- I will be more present with my kids and less present with my iPhone.
- I will read more than one book. Which was all that I read in 2011.
That’s it: just four resolutions. Do-able, right? Please, I urge you, hold me to them, esp #1.
Thanks for listening.
