A Reflection on Making Changes in the New Year

January brings a barrage of articles about how to keep your new year’s resolutions, and how to effect long-term change. It’s like watching the same train wreck, year after year. January: Goal set. March: Goal, what goal?

I am guilty. ┬áResolutions I have made for the new year are rarely fulfilled – I don’t make them any more – and reading these regurgitated strategies about how to keep resolutions, year after year, remind me of my past failings and make me wonder, do these work for anyone? Yet, not only do I still read these articles when they are picked up by my Feedly, I actively search them out with the hopes that someday, someone will write something new, something with a little more substance.
