We all make them. Webster defines them as firm decisions to do or not do something. We promise that this year will be different, this year we will do what we have failed to accomplish in years past.

We will work out daily, read 24 constructive classics, visit 2 continents, and make better friends with the neighbors. To help ourselves, we make lists with bullet points, due dates, and rewards. We tell our friends what we're going to do, task them to hold us accountable, and jump in head first. Resolutions fixed upon, preparations made, moral support commissioned.

Sometimes, we even finish what we started.

Resolutions take work. Just like work takes work. Good stuff doesn't come easy. Make your resolutions. Write down goals. Shoot big. Aim high. And do them.

Cause good stuff is worth the work it takes to get there.
