An acquaintance of mine wrote this blog entry about keeping New Year’s Resolutions. I really liked the last line on particular:
Write down your dream in pen, but write down your action plan in pencil.
It’s important to have a specific goal in mind, and preferably written down. But life has a way of throwing challenges in your path. Your original “route” may need to be adjusted as your circumstances change – time, money, injury or family situations can all impact our plan and routine. The key is to be flexible but not lose sight of your target!
