i'm a big fan of making simple achievable new years resolutions. last year's resolution i managed to achieve two weeks into the year. i was off the hook for 50 weeks!
but this year i really couldn't think of a good resolution at all. on new year's eve someone asked me about my resolution for this year and so i blurted out something about not doing my continuing legal education at the last minute. but that was more of a spur-of-the-moment answer. i'm not sure if it counts as a real resolution. a real resolution means actual resolve and forethought. not some snappy answer for lack of anything better to say. besides, right now the prospect of putting off watching some stupid ethics video for 11 months and 29 days just doesn't sound all that bad.
i think my resolution this year is to come up with a good resolution for next year. something that i can have laying in reserve when the question inevitably comes up next new year's eve. this gives me plenty of time to come up with something good. maybe i'll work on it something around the time i get to that CLE credit.
