New Year’s Day
No partying last night. Spent the night reading and editing to the beat of cracking and fizzing fireworks. No resolutions for me. I am too motivated to succumb to the masses’ belief that making plans on the first day of January are more likely to succeed than those made on any other day. How many smokers who ceased on January the first of any year remain smoke-free?
All plans are subject to falter, or change. I rule my life by the ‘DAMM’ principles: Determination, Application, Motivation and Modification. Accordingly, I make plans on any day of the year (including Friday the thirteenth) and I make damn sure that I will achieve them.
