I remembered her sad face as she begged me to stay and snuggle for five more minutes. And I had said no. I said I would set an alarm for 2 minutes, and then I was leaving.
I’ve never been one to make New Year’s Resolutions, for a number of reasons:
- A New Year’s Resolution is generally an ineffective way to reach a goal, as most people make their resolutions too generic.
- Most people aren’t quite ready to make a change when they make a resolution.
- I don’t see a need to wait until a new year to make changes for the better – you should be evaluating your life at the bare minimum every six months, but preferably on a monthly basis, and making changes as needed. This is especially true if you own a business.
But this year is different. I’ve realized that just because new year’s resolutions are usually ineffective, mine don’t have to be that way.
We all have dreams. Whether they are dreams we’ve had since we were children, or dreams we’ve developed as we’ve grown older, we all have those things we wish we could do. We all spend at least part of our lives daydreaming about what could be. That’s no way to live… always wondering what could be. If there is something you really want to do, if there is a dream you’ve had for a long time, it’s time to stop dreaming and start planning.
