It is week two-point-five of 2008. How are you doing?
It doesn't take long to lose the momentum, does it? Even though the gyms are still buying TV ad space, the February magazines are coming onto the store shelves, covered in pink and red hearts, and the next candy holiday is already looming.
The credit card statements are in--and they are every bit as bad as we feared. Tax software is on the store endcaps. Finally, finally we are writing 2009 on our checks instead of 2008 (though I won't get the hang of that until April, at least).
Has the energy fizzled yet? If not, that's great. Keep on keepin' on!
If so, consider whether a resolution was what you needed in the first place. Have you promised yourself major, radical change for 2009? Was that reasonable? Do you have the tools to meet your goals? Does anyone else know (or care about) what you have planned for this year?
If "no" is the answer to any of those questions, take stock now what you need and what you have. E-mail a friend (or, if you are really brave, post it in your facebook status bar) about your renewed commitment to yourself.
12 days is too soon to give up on yourself. Dust off, pick up, and take a flight of stairs. Twice.
