Whether it’s to save money, eat healthier or get more exercise, many of us are vowing—hoping—to do better next year.
My number one New Year’s resolution? It’s not to make any New Year’s resolutions. Because after so many years, the repetition completely bores me. And the fact that they get repetitive is a pretty obvious sign that these resolutions went unfulfilled (again) last year.
And yet. Without fail, around this time of year—no matter how hard I try to resist its pull—my mind swerves to take me on a different train of thought, with the usual pressing questions: What can I do better next year? What have I learned from this year that will keep me from making the same mistakes next year? What goals do I want to accomplish?
