Re: Dreams and resolutions


Date: Mon Jul 09 2001 - 16:13:10 PDT

I once attended a First Night Celebration (a New Year's Eve
thing usually held in local towns)where there was a
resolution tent. At the tent you addressed a card to
yourself and listed your 5 resolutions for the New Year. You
then deposited the postcard in a big box. The organization
sent them back to you the first week of the following
January. Believe me by then you had forgotten you filled
out the cards with your resolutions. It was a real wakeup
call to me that while I was sincere in filling out the card
with realistic goals, I had no intention of following
through because 12 months later I had not reached one of the
five designated goals. I have since shortened my lists, and
made sure I work hard to reach my goals.
