DECIDING TO JUMP


A boy told his father, "Dad, if three frogs were sitting on a limb that hung over a pool, and one frog decided to jump off into the pool, how many frogs would be left on the limb?"


The dad replied, "Two."


"No," the son replied. "There’s three frogs and one decides to jump, how many are left?"


The dad said, "Oh, I get it, if one decides to jump, the others would too. So there are none left."


The boy said, "No dad, the answer is three. The frog only DECIDED to jump."


Does that sound like last year’s resolution? Great inspiration and great resolutions, but often times we only decide, and months later we are still on the same limb of do-nothing.
