2009 New Year’s resolutions?

12/30/2008:

Sigh… I never was one for “New Years resolutions…,” although I experimented with some the past two years here on 411 – the “No drinks till the Super Bowl” (success) – and the “No booze till tax day” (only made it ~50 something days, about halfway through) – Also the “Surviving on $10 a Day Challenge” (fun, but was more work to document every damn thing I ate). Should I try a new resolution this year?

Do these fruity resolutions work?

Frankly – the ideal resolution would be: “In 2009, I will become more efficient, improve my health, eliminate caffeine and artificial sweetener intake, manage my money better, delegate more, get in touch with a normal circadian rhythm, become 10 years younger (physically), take a real vacation, and so on and so on….”

But that almost all-encompassing resolution would be next to impossible, no? And why wait till January to begin positive change? Shouldn’t self-improvement be an ongoing thing?

So here it is almost the end of the year – and I have no genius idea to try out come Thursday morning. Maybe I can get motivated by one of the readers?

What about you guys?

I resolve not to respond to Trolls…

(People truly debating an issue are not trolls to me.)

A better resolution would be learning the difference between threw and through (though I suspect you just didn’t review your post before hitting “submit”). 😆

FTR, all the bitching about the pop up ads makes me wonder if people really have nothing better to do, or are just THAT hungover. It was one ad that you got hit with for a few seconds. I complain about a lot of things, but that didn’t bother me at all. Are you people cranky and hungover? Is that what’s going on? 😆 😆 Happy new year![/quote]

This from someone pointing out grammatical errors on New Years Day.
