So, What Are Your New Year’s Resolutions?

Randolph Mase Blogging Tips 2

       A popular topic of conversation this time of year seems to be what resolutions people have made for the new year.  Then I stumbled across a list of popular resolutions published by the US government.  I’m not really sure how they would know them, but here is their list: 

  1. Drink less alcohol
  2. Eat healthy food
  3. Get a better education
  4. Get a better job
  5. Get fit
  6. Lose weight
  7. Manage debt
  8. Manage stress
  9. Quit smoking
  10. Reduce, resuse, recycle
  11. Save money
  12. Take a trip
  13. Volunteer to help others

       And each of the 13 has a link to related government-provided information or services.  Not a bad idea, if you make resolutions.  Do I?  Not a chance; as some people say, resolutions are made to be broken.  And as Yoda said in The Empire Strikes Back, “Try not.  Do or do not.  There is no try.” At least this way, I don’t break any resolutions…
