Resolutions can be helpful

Q: I’ve never been one for New Year’s resolutions, but I’m starting to wonder if something like that might be helpful. What are your thoughts?

Jim: It’s jolting to realize we’re already at the beginning of a new calendar. Many people use this time to pause, reflect, regret, repent and resolve to make some changes. By the time the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, millions of Americans will have compiled their lists. I imagine a lot of those resolutions will be things like losing weight, getting fit and (with Christmas behind us) getting out of debt.

Every one of us is still a work in progress, so New Year’s resolutions can be a helpful exercise toward growth and positive change. I usually don’t have a specific list, but I do reflect on the past and set goals for the future. Taking personal inventory is like getting a much-needed wheel alignment on your car – it improves the ride and helps avoid potential damage.
