You may have noticed that I haven't written anything about New Year's Resolutions. Admittedly, I'm not a big fan of that annual ritual. People treat it more like cleaning the attic out once a year just so they can get back to piling up crap again. Most resolutions lack commitment and frankly, resolve.

At any given time, 20% of the population claims to be "on a diet". That number is even higher at the beginning of each year as new members flood the place in a rush to undo a year's worth of bad habits. If you have resolved to lose a few pounds this year, let me ask you this: What are you going to do differently this time? Is this the year that you are going to make lasting changes, or are you going to get back on the hamster wheel and spend an entire year "dieting" only to end up right where you started?
