I like to think I'm a goal-oriented person. I like the feeling of accomplishment I get after I can cross something off my list. Why, then, is it so hard for me to get into New Year's resolutions? I've tried a few times, but they always fizzle about 3 seconds after I make them, and I never even think about them again.

It would be awesome if I could make resolutions like this, but it would be a lesson in futility:

1. I resolve to end world hunger.
2. I resolve to prevent any more snow from touching my driveway. From now on it will only fall on the lawn.
3. I resolve to become independently wealthy overnight.

Yeah, not going to happen.

I'm right there with ya. I like accomplishing things, especially things I've put off for awhile, but I'm horrible with resolutions at the beginning of each year. I think last year I resolved to not make any resolutions. It actually worked because I can't think of a single thing that I stuck with all year! Other than eating healthier.
