Every January 1st, we come up with our New Year resolutions. It’s an opportunity to redefine ourselves, correct our deficiencies, improve, and set goals / objectives. Developing them is easy; keeping them is not. Why? The answer is simple. It’s called working against established habits, making accountable concerted efforts to change, and doing things that may be arduous to maintain.
Accomplishing some resolutions can become serious work; perhaps another job! Geez!

I categorize my resolutions into professional, personal, and spiritual goals. Every year, no matter how focused, I succeed on some and fail on others. Yet, I realized on my failures that I am better off trying than not. “Nothing beats failure than a try!” Now, I only have to improve the odds of my success.
