Friday Night Think Tank: New Year’s Resolution Edition

Doc BrownIt’s the final Friday Night Think Tank of 2013, Modern Philosophers!

Hope your Holiday Season has been going well.  I’ve been on vacation since Tuesday, so I almost forgot it was Friday.  How crazy would it have been for me to miss the Think Tank because I lost track of the days?

As New Year’s Day approaches, it’s time to think about the resolutions we are going to make for 2014.  Let’s put on our Deep Thinking Togas and head out to the Think Tank to discuss our resolutions…

This week’s topic: What’s the one New Year’s resolution that you are absolutely going to make sure you keep in 2014?

I wrote a post earlier today about how well I did at keeping 2013’s resolutions, but there are always a few that fall through the cracks.

For 2014, there is one promise I am absolutely not going to break: I resolve to make sure that next Christmas is better than the last two.

I’m not going to go into details, Modern Philosophers, but Christmas this year was worse than last year’s, and I thought that was the most horrible Christmas a guy could ever have.

There’s no way I’m going to suffer through the happiest time of the year for a third consecutive year.  You heard it here first.  Here’s hoping that in 12 months, I’m writing posts about my wonderful 2014 Christmas experiences.

resolutionsWhat about you, Modern Philosophers?  What’s the one resolution you are going to do everything in your power to keep?

Remember, there are no wrong answers in the Think Tank, so write whatever you want.  I look forward to reading all of your comments, and I resolve to do so once I get a good night’s sleep.  Happy Last Think Tank of 2013!

    Sorry to hear your Christmas was rotten. Wish I knew why so I could give you some really bad advice.

    Every year my children ask, “What do you want for Christmas.”
    Every year I say the same thing, “Pleeeeeze come to this house with a rental truck and take some of this junk AWAY!”

    My son just left with 2 plastic bins, a jewelry box full of stuff for the Munchkin and 2 pints of honey.

    It was a good Christmas, indeed!

    Finish my book and get it published already! Happy New Year Austin!

  3. Make sure 2014 is a good one. No dwelling on the sucktasm that was 2013 (though there were a highlight or two). Move forward.

  4. Hmmm. I’m not sure. Maybe stop procrastinating? Or asking other people’s opinions before I make up my mind… what do you think?

    I didn’t realize until the end of November that I kept my 2013 resolution to learn a new skill (line dancing). I’m terrible at new year’s resolutions! However, as I explain on my blog tomorrow, I have a life resolution: JOY. No matter what, I resolve to retain joy in my heart. Enough to live out at any given moment no matter the circumstances or crankiness that surrounds me. 🙂

    Happy New Year, Austin! May your next 12 months lead up to one of the best Christmases you’ve ever had.

    How can I make your Christmas better next year? Please let me know.

    For me Christmas was wonderful. I think it was because I expected nothing. This is going to be my continued goal for this new year. Expect nothing. I’m going to live in gratitude. I will give more and more. I will try and try to pray for the better of others. I will provide love encouragement and grace as best as I can. This will be my goal.
