This week’s focus point: Resolutions are meaningless without means to instantiate them. “Resolve,” a cognate, means to have an assertive and firm action to do something. Schedule the elements you need in your calendar, have someone hold you accountable, and apply the daily discipline to do it. Then resolutions become improved performance and desired behaviors. Otherwise, they’re less likely to occur than your choice on a given spin of the roulette wheel. Are you betting on long shots or relying on sure shots? Happy New Year!!
Monday Morning Perspective: Political language–and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists–is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. — George Orwell
