No New Year's Resolutions!

I agree fully with Resolved: To Go Easy on the Resolutions by Lisa Belkin in today's New York Times.
Obsessing over the details and wanting to control everything can be a recipe for failure. Maybe a better way to describe it is overreaching.

My friend Steve Shapiro of Goal Free Living yesterday posted a passage from What you'll wish you'd known a January (2005) piece by Paul Graham.

Let me pick just one sentence out of Paul's piece "Don’t worry if a project doesn’t seem to be on the path to some goal you’re supposed to have. Paths can bend a lot more than you think. So let the path grow out the project."

I see this confirmed in the interaction between two loosely joined pieces, my concierge business and this blog.

So No New Year's Resolutions for me, well but for a soft one: some form of European trip, some time in 2007 to visit family and friends and find out how americanized I am or not!
