You and I will probably come across a hundred articles about New Year’s resolutions in 2023 … again. And, if you and I are like the majority—the well-intentioned, regular people who genuinely want change—we will aspire to big things and later get frustrated and give up on the list we made … again.
What if it was easy this time? What if we didn’t have to make an endless list and be reminded, by looking at it, of all the things we may fail at again?
Imagine if it were as simple as 1, 2, 3, 3.
Let’s try this instead.!
1. Make “one” your magic number. Count to one each day, starting now, not from January 1st—NOW! What is the one thing that you want to do and will do today?
One email or paragraph you will write, or one chapter you will read, or one person you’ll reach out to. Which one of these lucky people will you text, call or email to let them know how much you appreciate or miss them? You might be inspired by their company, or you may feel sorry for them. Who do you call or write to to share the one great memory?
I committed to writing, calling or praying for anyone who crossed my mind the same day.
