So they say New Year’s Resolutions typically last through February and will fizzle by the start of March. Mine usually stay strong from the time I make them (at the beginning of the holiday season) through New Year’s Eve (when I’m partaking in activities that will result in a painful New Year’s Day and lots and LOTS of complex carbohydrates). New Year’s morning has historically begun with me scratching my aching head, wondering, “What was I saying about doing yoga with the sunrise? That it’s too cliche? I’m pretty sure I said it’s too cliche.”
What is it about the New Year’s Resolution that’s different than any other goal? Why is it that they seem so much harder to instill than, say, a regular aspiration; like taking more vitamins or watching less —I mean violence on TV?
Well that’s what we’re digging into on this week’s episode of Confabulous !, listeners. My friend and editor , Jennifer Ciotta ( I, Putin ; No Bulls**t Guide to Self-Publishing ), is my trustee co-host, here to gab with me about what goals are working for us, why they’re working, and which resolutions we’re giving the finger to. There will probably be a few shameless plugs for my book thrown in there too, so, spoiler alert.
We want to hear how 2014 is treating you, so call or write in and join the confab!
