Others on January 1st: My resolution is to [insert boring clichèd goal]

  • Lose Weight
  • Workout More
  • Eat Better
  • Spend More Time with family
  • Relax more
  • Destress
  • Get Organized
  • Spend less
  • Quit Smoking
  • Stop drinking coffee
  • Stop drinking

Me throughout the year: I want to [insert goal]…I’ll start now and make a plan.

Since I seem to be a rebel to most “normal” things it makes sense that I am also against New Year’s resolutions…let me explain why

At the end of the year I DO enjoy looking back at the year and revisit everything that happened.  I like to remember what the good things were, what the challenges were, what I did well, and what I could improve on.  Revisit The Green Horseman’s year at A Year in Review: 2017.

I have never been good with resolutions; most people aren’t.

In my opinion a new year doesn’t mean YOU are ready to do what it takes to accomplish your goals.  All a new year really means is that you need to remember to change a number in the date.

2017 –> 2018


When I want to change something about my life I don’t need to wait until a new year in order to start.  I simply make sure that my goal is attainable and make a plan to accomplish said goal.

If I’m inspired, I act on it.

I don’t feel obligated to make a sudden change simply because it’s a new year.

Why should I?

Do horses know it’s a new year?


Humans are the only ones who put a time stamp on it, the rest of the world goes by nature as it happens.

That being said, have you resolved to change something about your life this year?

What are you currently working on?
