RESOLUTIONS THROUGH THE YEARS


Has anyone decided what your New Year’s Resolutions will be for 2011? Before you do it, let’s take a look at how Resolutions tend to work out… Here are some examples:


2007: I will read at least 10 books this year

2008: I will try to finish the book I started last year.

2009: I will read most of my email this year

2010: I will sometimes read the comic section of the Sunday paper


Or for those of us who are constantly worrying about weight:


2007: I will work out 5 days a week and eat 500 calories a day until I lose 20 pounds

2008: I will work out 3 days a week and try to lose the 5 pounds I gained last year

2009: I will walk my dog and throw out that box of Twinkies next week.


Or for those of you with money issues:


2007: By next year I will be completely out of debt

2008: By next year I will pay the interest on my credit card

2009: By next year I will transfer my debt to a new credit card.

2010: By next year I will be out of the country


It reminds me of the man who said, At the end of my life, I hope many people will say of me: "Boy, that guy sure did owe me a lot of money."
