Wouldn’t it be great if we made a New Day’s Resolution instead of a New Year’s Resolution? That way we would only have to try for the next day ahead of us. Actually, only the next 15 or so hours ahead of us. And when you think of it in that way, it makes our resolutions a lot easier.
We can be resolute, optimistic and positive about accomplishing something within the next few hours. Other good labels to brand ourselves: determined, purposeful, steadfast.
Throw out those year-long plans. Think only of this day, these minutes, this solitary hour in our hands. It is all we have. All we will ever have.
