New Year’s Resolutions … oh no, not again!

Happy New YearWell here we go again … it is that time of the year when many of us become introspective and motivated to do something about how we spend our time and other resources. Perhaps that is good, except of course when we don’t do what we should be doing in all of life … that is keep track of how we are doing in the past so we can be better stewards of what we plan to do in the future.

Lose weight, exercise, and spend more time with family and friends … you know the list that will once again be considered and perhaps even become a statement of intent: our New Year’s Resolution for 2016 in this case.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a news writer (TV Critic Ken Tucker) consider lots of things he was going to watch to be more impactful in 2016. Top of his list was watching more Big Bang Theory. Here is what he said:

I’ll Give The Big Bang Theory Another Shot It’s by far the most popular sitcom in America, measured by ratings, but gosh darn it, I never crack a smile whenever I’ve watched it. I really admire Jim Parsons’ performance; I think he’s a great comic talent, with a sense of timing the equal of such first-rate sitcom stars as — well, as Bob Newhart, and who’s popped up occasionally on Big Bang.


Finally, I have a New Year’s Resolution I can and will keep! Maybe this is the real key to success: paint the bull’s eye around the place you land and declare victory. Sounds like a plan to me.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
