I’ve never been too interested in holiday celebrations but New Years seems like the most useless holiday. Why is it necessary to celebrate a new year even if we already understand that a new year arrives every fucking year? One can apply that same logic with birthdays and arrive at the same concusion: they’re fucking useless.
However; the concept of a new year’s resolution is not so useless; that comes out of a simple desire to improve one’s self. Every human should strive for self-improvement while remembering that perfection is an illusion.
I think the key to maintaining positive resolutions throughout the year is to construct them with humble components; keep your resolutions simple and small (at least to start with). Complicating matters with a more detailed agenda forces one to use more resources for the ultimatum. There is beauty in simplicity and simple, day-to-day goals can help to clear your path for your long-term mission.
My simple resolution for the year of 2017 is to become a more organized individual. I recently purchased a weekly planner and I will be writing my goals by the week in that planner. Hopefully, this tactic will assist my efforts to become more organized.
