Resolutions and Saying No

Since January is the most universal time to make resolutions for the new year, I have been reflecting on what changes my family may need to make as we continue our quest to be healthier, greener, and more self-sufficient. I don't know if my list last year helped anyone focus on what their family needed to do, but it is a good reminder for me of what to continue.

I also saw this article online that offers a valuable tip which I had not thought of in quite these terms before. Sometimes--more often than we realize--it is just as important to know (and plan) when to say no as it is to plan all the things we're going to do: "Focusing our energies--and goals--on what we should NOT be doing in the coming year can have just as positive an effect on our productivity, not to mention well-being." A "Stop-Doing" List sounds like a great idea to me!
