Those Darn Resolutions!

Goals quote from Jim RohnI am a big fan of setting goals, and this time of year a lot of people have “resolutions” for the New Year. You would think that given how often I encourage people to improve themselves that I would be supporting their initiatives!

Well … its complicated!

1. I’m not a patient guy … so when all those people with brand new resolutions clog up the gym equipment I’m beginning to wonder whether I should be supporting this way of thinking!
2. If everyone who started using the equipment this month were to keep it up throughout the year, then gyms would just get more equipment … but history shows that they won’t. By end of January a lot of people will have fallen off and by end of February MOST will be gone.

So …

IF you are going to be one of the very small percentage of people that actually do change your life, and keep up the exercise then congratulations!

IF you are going to be one of the majority to who quit soon … can you hurry up and quit so I can get on the exercise equipment when I want it!

Better yet … prove me wrong and ALL of you keep exercising for the whole year. That I could live with!

  1. If I were you I’d forget about the gym for a while and get out in the snow. XC skis or snowshoes are the only equipment you need.

    I live in the GTA, and even here the ski conditions here are good.

    Conditions in Gatineau must be magnificent now!

  3. I like this post! I don’t like waiting in line to use the equipment or running all over the gym trying to track down a pair of weights. Kudos for trying to make a change but get off my elliptical machine!!!

  5. Don, You are absolutely right cross country skiing is great exercise … and I even used to own a cross country ski machine!! Unfortunately my early attempts at the sport demonstrated my abysmal sense of balance and a growing aversion to the cold! Yeah … I know, wimp! But at least I’m not clogging up your ski trails … enjoy!
