We’re two weeks into 2009 now. Did you make a New Year’s Resolution?

Before breakfast on January 1st I swam in the river where the picture above was taken. It wasn’t a particularly pleasant experience, but I felt that it would set my year off on the right foot: no excuses and no procrastination.

Have you kept your resolution? Or have you already lapsed; those good intentions seeming now like little more than a vague, warm, unrealistic dream?

If that is the case, don’t wait until December 31st to have another go. Start again. Each day can be a new year’s day. Push away the excuses, and set about your year with purpose.

Make each day count. Add value with each day.

Happy New Year!
