2017 – The Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions are doomed to failure. For proof you only need to go to a gym early in the new year and then again in March – or so I’m told since I’d be more likely to be the one not there.

I have failed before and I have said I have failed before and said that this year will be different before – if you can follow that you might be deserving of a medal.

This year I have a slightly different plan. I’m going to try to relax just a bit. I’m terrible at relaxing. In work I’ll be worried that I’m not going to be ready for the day and if I am ready I’ll be worried that that means I must have forgotten something. I can’t control work but at least I may be able to control the rest of my life.

In the rest of my life I have a to-do list. And I used to set it up to repeat necessary tasks. This year I haven’t done that. This year I have a cunning plan…

It’s not as cunning as a fox who went to oxford but it will do…

I’m adding all new tasks manually. So when there is a day when I can’t do stuff, for wherever reason, I don’t schedule stuff. So far it seems to be working. I’m scheduling less and getting more done.

So have I made any resolutions this year?

Kind of…

Sort of…

Your mileage may vary…

Finish my novel (which has been here for the last umpteen years)

Finish another secret novel.

Submit 12 short stories.

And help a very special woman in my life in any way I can.

Will I succeed who can say?

I will know in time.


I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
