    I take a different track – I do New Year Revolutions! They start in November and then reset in October of the next year. Why reset in November? Because the Winter is hard and I make it the easiest time of the year by doing less. Essentially I adopt one new habit over that month. And yes, they need to be small and relatively straight forward. In November my goal was to climb 15 flights of stair per day. I can do that because in my house climbing the stairs from basement to our main level is one flight and my phone monitors flights walked in a day. If I don’t do it one day, I’m not a failure. I’m looking for an average of 15 per day over the month. So I can make up for a Monday of only 13 flights of stairs with two days at 16. The other thing to remember is that even just trying is worth something – perfect in anything is a trap after all. HUGS! D10

    I love that! You’re right Darren, trying to reach perfection will always lead to disappointment.
