The easiest thing in the world ….the very easiest, no sweat, accomplishable task….that I can think of is to talk about what I plan to do.
How cool is it that January 1st is kind of a traditional day for big promises and dreams?
I’m making plans to start planning something fresh and interesting….life changing and invigorating….as we speak.
As I speak.
As I type.
My resolution is to plan something that will knock my socks off.
Flat off my feet.
I have a lot of irons in the fire….I have a lot of stuff to do.
I have a lot of things to try and hold together….and here I am, wanting to put a veneer of excitement on something and start the New Year off doing something different than what I’ve been doing the previous year and make our lives more VITAL somehow….or more effervescent….or just a wee bit FRESHER…. somehow.
OK, here’s a resolution….I’m going to try and bloom where I’m planted this year…and if I need to change something, I’m going to make what I do already a little more sophisticated and refined…..make what we have already a little more beautiful….get my stuff together, in other words.
No need to upset the apple cart….maybe just clean it up and make a bunch of pies with the apples I already have.
I don’t know, though…..the “big plans” sound so much more important.
“This is the year of the walkabout, the South American joy ride, rebuilding the VW bus and taking off for the wild and free….no, I’d describe it best as the ‘vintage VW bus’…..building the business that rockets and sustains, being more than anyone ever expected….AND having the number one viral video on YouTube….a video about something really cool and unusual….a video that will make us RICH….R…I…C….H.”
“Find a way to end world hunger and educate the masses.”
I think the selfish thing sounds more fun.
What’s fun, though?
I think that this year I hope to stay off Kim Jong-Un’s radar.
I don’t know how to do that….maybe never mention him in a blog? I really don’t know…..but it’s a reachable goal and probably kind of smart.
Any of these plans sound OK….
Anyway, I’ve read that “if I’m not planning, I’m already planning to fail” ….or something like that.
No….I remember! “Failing to plan is planning to fail”. That’s the one I couldn’t remember.
I don’t plan to fail.
I just don’t always know what I’m planning to do.
Big plans sound cool, though.
Today is the day! I’ve got to put some kind of plan together.
That’s a good enough resolution for me.
