My good friend Patrick Wilkinson recently pointed out that I may not be one of those persons for whom Resolutions work.  And now I’m essentially going for broke and doubling down on a strategy that’s proven to fail.

He’s right.

I’m basically the George Bush of New Year’s Resolutions.

But that’s the point of blind spots, isn’t it?  That you’re blind to them?  So I stand resolute.

I have my political capital and I plan to spend it!  Or as the case actually was for our former President:  I don’t have any capital and I plan to spend it.
