But, here's the thing. The list is pretty much the same each year and, as you've probably already deduced, my resolutions tend to get side-tracked within the first few months. Doesn't matter though. I still believe in the process and, come next December 31st, I know I'll likely be performing the same ritual all over again.
See, what's most important to me is setting an intention. Maybe it's because I like to plot and plan anyway, but it seems to me that making that plan is the necessary first step to accomplishing anything. If you don't start out with a goal, not only are you far less likely to achieve it, but you're also less likely to achieve anything at all.
It's like with travel. I have no problem at all with veering from an established plan and heading off on a spontaneous adventure--that's where a lot of the fun happens. Once you're on the road, it doesn't matter if you change your destination, but if you don't start with a destination in mind...well, too often you never start at all.
So, here's my number one resolution for this year: I resolve to get out there and make 2014 my best year ever...until next year rolls around.
