I have a confession to make. I despise resolutions. Ok, that's not much of a confession.
Here's a better one. I don't like making plans. I do them. But I don't like it.
So in my New Year's post, I might have been telling myself more than anyone, PLAN IT.
I think the other thing that needs to be added to that- either a carrot or a stick. It's true, if we don't like doing something either we need to find a reward or punishment that will get us that next step over the hump.
I am going to try a reward system (what exactly I don't know, told you I don't like plans). But until then, I think punishment or avoiding it works too.
At the beginning of the year, I made plans - not resolutions. I've done OK on them. The one I realized that I slacked off in was reading. I do like to read. But I got away from reading a variety of things. I think I wanted to blame it on a variety of things. Partially that I read a lot online, but I needed to be doing more straightup BOOK reading.
Well, I have finally. It took about a month but I am back to being the serial abuser of the library that my wife disdains (not for reading but for forgetting to return books on time, planning!).
So, I call myself out. Todd, you slacker, do better!
What do you need to be called out on today?
