With Christmas over, we’re all getting psyched for that moment, counting the last few seconds until, bang! 2017! Along with celebrations, there are declarations of change. How long they will last is up to whoever has made such a promise.
Those promises are known as New Years’ Resolutions, the promise we all want to follow through with as Father Time ushers us into the new year. However, consistency is more difficult than it seems when we attempt to alter our routines and old habits.
Sure, we all know the malarkey that comes with a resolution, but the fun in its creation and creativity is unparalleled.
Exercise the right to set a goal, yet push for stability. Once that first week passes by, prepare for procrastination. Fight it. Tell it, “Go to hell!”
For me, I have a few items on my list of things to accomplish in 2017.
My personal and somewhat realistic resolutions:
- Increase persistence of freelance endeavors
- Blog more
- Work on multiple projects at once
- Make better investments in regards to self-publishing
I’m certain that one of these will stick more than the next. They’re all great ideas, but they need some substance.

We’ll see what happens…
