2021 – A Successful Year of Commitments

In 2021, I decided that I would no longer make New Year’s Resolutions. I have made countless resolutions, and can’t think of one that I have ever maintained. In fact, Up to 80-percent of those resolutions fail by the second week of February according to the U.S. News & World Report.

Instead, I chose to make commitments. That word just sounds better to me. It has a greater weight to it, and ultimately sounds more like a covenant I am making with myself.

Back in June/July, I posted a “Halfway” post detailing not only what my commitments were, but how I was doing with them. I figured now is a time to start telling everyone how the end of the year went as well. I plan on doing a series of posts to describe how I did with my commitments.

My commitments were as follows:

  1. Weigh under 250 lbs by the end of the year
  2. Read 25 books (keep list, reviews)
  3. Be happy
  4. Cumulative 500 miles by the end of the year
  5. Pray Daily
  6. Read Bible Daily
  7. Read Other book daily
  8. No more than two Diet DPs a day
  9. Drink a gallon of water a day

How did I do with these? Over the next few days, I hope to give you greater detail as to how I did with each of these. Let’s just say, overall I was pretty pleased with my follow through…on most of these.
