New Year's Resolutions - Why?

Did you make a New Year's Resolution this year? I don't want to sound like a curmudgeon, but why?

Did you come up with your resolution on New Years Eve when you were already half in the bag? Or, did you make it on New Years Day when you were horizontal on the couch and looking like the Poster Child for acetaminophen? Did you just borrow someone elses resolution becuase it "sounded" like a good idea. Good luck with that. Let me then ask, what made one of those two days different from the other 363 days in the year when you could have made the same resolution? How many resolutions did you make? Are there enough of them to make sure you'll probably dumb luck your way into accomplishing one of them?

I hope you get where I'm going with this. New Year's Resolutions are about as effective as Hallmark cards on bosses day. Perhaps you'll find a four leaf clover next time you cut your grass.

Just something to ponder.
