It’s a time for renewal, refreshment, vows and resolutions; raise your right hand and vow to never to do this kind of C.R.A.P. again
It’s Jan. 3, and if you’re like me you’ve already blown most of your New Year’s resolutions.
I had two major ones: Weigh less, and write more. Yesterday, Jan. 2, I was faced with my first choice of the new year. I had a whole day to myself. I could work out, then write my little hands off.
I went to the Mexican restaurant around the corner, had four margaritas, read a cheap mystery novel, took a three-hour nap, got up, ordered pizza for dinner and watched five episodes of “24.”
If you’re at all like me (and you know you are) and you’ve blown all your resolutions already, it’s time to redeem yourself. There’s nothing you can do about all those personal resolutions. You have failed again. It happens every year, doesn’t it? Deal with it and move on. If you haven’t failed, please check back with this column on Feb. 1. You will have failed by then.
But even though you’ve blown your personal resolutions, you can still make some professional resolutions, and stick to them.
