It’s the time of year where, according to our local news last night, people are struggling to keep their New Year’s resolutions already. The 75-year-old man who is still working in my office said he has not failed at a resolution in over 30 years.
His resolution this year? He’s not going to pole vault in the future.
When asked if he has ever pole vaulted in the past, he answered, “No, but I saw someone do it once. It looked crazy enough I decided that when I got around to it, I would decide not to do it. Well, I’m getting around to it.”
I think success is all about state of mind.
