New Year’s Resolutions

At the start of the new year, everyone, it seems, is offering up their predictions for 2013. Will $AAPL reach $700? Will Windows Phone find success? I thought it would be helpful to think much further out.

The table is covered by a white table cloth, symbolizing Christ’s swaddling clothes. Hay is brouight forth as a reminder of the poverty into which Christ was born. A tall white candle is palced in the center of the table, symbolic of Christ, “The Light of the World”. A large round load of Lenter bread, symbolic of Christ The Bread of Life, is placed next to the candle.

Number Two: Take a Publishing-News Fast. Let’s face it-the from publishing is mostly depressing. Major imprints closing down. Editors losing jobs all over the place. The latest news of print sales falling 9 percent last year makes your heart plummet, even though this slack and more has been taken up with e-book sales. Some of us have no choice but to follow the business end of things, but you don’t-you can take a nice long fast from this and let your creativity soar. Whenever I’m writing, I let publishing go take a long hike-in the opposite direction from the path I walk.

Don’t fall for easy shortcuts. There is no magic pill, and there is no magic diet where you can lose weight eating junk. We all waste money on gimmicks like these because we so badly want to believe that they exist, but I can assure you they don’t.

Some of your written goals may, and should be lofty. Those are the goals that should have subgoals. Depending on the nature of your goals, then, your plans and subgoals will be more elaborate. Conversely some goals may be that simple that they will not have subgoals. One simple action can complete that objective.

Give yourself a little boost in weight loss by drinking a shake full of protein, fiber and fruit in place of eating a high-cal meal. This is a great way to get enough protein and fiber as well as antioxidants in your daily diet while consuming less calories.

So, if you are looking for a real adventure in the Land of Smiles, try riding a motorcycle and please ensure that you do follow the rules and regulations of Thailand, drive safely, and wear a quality helmet.
