New year

It’s always the same on New Year’s Eve , the overwhelming feeling of wanting to accomplish or change something for the better in the coming year.

I get contemplative and inspired and discouraged.

I have visions of organization and order and greatness.

It is all floating there on my head – what am I going to attempt this year, what goals do I want to set.

A few years ago I read somewhere that it is better to create habits than to set goals.

Alright – so now the thoughts are more along the lines of what habits I want to form.

And I know how you for m habits, you repeat the same behavior over and over and for that you need perserverance and motivation both of which I seem to lack.

In a sense I think preserverence is fed by motivation so I suppose in the end it is the motivation that is the real problem.

My latest bright idea is to have something like 2 or 3 habits that I want to learn every month and set my mind to do those every day – but what would those be?
