Each of the past ten years, give or take, I have sat thinking about what to resolve that has been a weakness of mine in the year before. I mentally make a list if my faults, and think about which to attack. As the last day of December approaches, however, I never choose from the list and I skip the tradition of resolutions all together.
You think this is the last year we have to endure glasses with numbers on them?
I noticed one thing present in most resolutions…procrastination. It’s quite easy to skip a healthy jog when you can sit and flip through a magazine. Saving money is tough when you rack up dumb bills for the video rentals you return late every time. Hitting the snooze button does not afford you the time to wait for a pot of coffee to brew, therefore you spend the three dollars paying someone else to make it….and so on.
Well, I thought about it and wondered what life would be like with no procrastinations. Not waiting to do the dishes until food had caked on, doing homework on time every time. I thought this would be a great resolution. And it would, if I were near perfect. I don’t think anyone can not procrastinate at certain points. Life…stuff…gets in the way.
So, I decided to give it a week. A new week’s resolution if you will. (I decided to procrastinate the beginning until tomorrow, cause a holiday is no time to start.) So, from January 2nd until the end of the 8th, I am going to be on top of everything. I might get a clean house and car from it. I should save money, even just a few bucks. I will most likely spend less time on the internet. And who knows, I might break a bad habit in the process or create a good one.
