First of all, like many of the bloggers, tweeters and Facebookers out there, I should probably wish you all a happy new year.
So here it is: HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!
Secondly, I'm sure by now that most of you will have decided on the resolution that you wish to achieve but will really only keep for approximately three weeks before forgetting about it completely. Don't worry! Believe it or not this is just prove that you're human. We all get excited about new ideas and plans which ultimately get pushed aside when life gets in the way. Take me for example. I decided that, to go along side the long awaited Photographic Journalism course I'm planning on taking in september, I should start writing a bit more. Now we all know that besides a slightly humorous piece about my enemy squirrel, I haven't really gone through with this idea as much as I would have liked.
After thinking about this for a while I think I've worked out this national problem we all seem to have with new years resolutions. We don't truly plan out exactly how we will achieve this goal or set ourselves any targets to help us do so. The simple statement of 'Im going to lose weight' means very little and will never be achieved, but the statement 'I want to be ** stone by 2013 and I'll do this by...' has more chance of success.
So think about it. If you are really serious about your resolution, why not spend an hour or so planning how you will achieve your specific goal and you never know, it may just happen.
As for me, I plan on publishing something on here at least once every two weeks. Wish me luck!
