As we wind down this holiday season, it’s easy to start making those “Big Plans” for the New Year.
After all, if you’re like me and ate your body weight in dessert this Christmas, it’s tempting to want to dig ourselves out of the glutinous rut we’ve settled into.
But before you buy that brand new pair of running shoes or throw out every item from your kitchen with sugar on the ingredient list, I’m going to make a suggestion, and I mean this nicely:
No, not “get real” as in you’re being a dingus, “get real” as in actually take the time to plan for the unplannable.
The truth is a lot of New Year’s resolutions are dead by the time Valentine’s Day creeps up.
I know because I’ve been the holder of many of them.
So for the final episode of 2022, I take a brief moment to meditate on what it means to be realistic.
Not just with our goals, but with ourselves.
I hope it can serve as an anchor for all your resolutions.
Enjoy the show and we’ll talk to you next year.
