Are New Year Resolutions Silly?

This is a question I ask myself again and again.  The answer I keep coming up with is yes and no (spoken like a true lawyer).

Yes a NEW YEAR resolution is silly.  If the resolution is worth making, why wait.  Make it happen now.

However, setting aside a time to evaluate your life and make changes is healthy and frankly I think mandatory. But I also think the New Year is a bad time to do this.  With the craziness surrounding the last 6 or 7 weeks of the year, why put that kind of pressure on yourself?

And don't you think introspection might best be had laying on your back in the green grass on a warm sunny day? Well maybe not for you, but that works better for me than trying to think about how to improve my life on some below zero temperature day with 8 hours or less of day light.

Take time to ponder how life is going and whether you need to make some changes.  But do this at a time when you are feeling calm and rested. Not after a marathon gift buying, wrapping, unwrapping, and exchange season. Like maybe June.  Yeah, June is good.

Endorse me on Sverve!
