Predictions are novelties but “actions speak louder than words”. The only question about the future that any of us can actually answer is “What will I do?”
Long Live George Jetson
When I was a kid, I loved The Jetsons cartoon. Watching George flying to work, dropping off daughter Judy, Boy Elroy and Jane his wife, then arriving to have his personal air-car “transform” to his briefcase fascinated me. The whole show was a prediction of the future but the characters were just like people in my everyday life.
Live to See it Happen
I have seen much of the technology portrayed in The Jetsons come to pass. Watching this show fueled my own dreams of the future. That was a good thing for me and for that I know that watching cartoons was NOT a waste of time! Most of all, it was FUN.
Any prediction of what will happen in the future is really just a folly, a bit of fun for the mind, doesn’t mean much in “the big picture”.
Big, broad-stroke resolutions don’t work well. If you say you will lose fifty pounds but on this day your diet consists of pizza, burgers and beer with no exercise, you are likely setting yourself up for failure. If you however say “I will change my diet in the next month and start a daily exercise routine, you are much more likely to succeed.
Ask “What will I do?”
Make it real, make it personal
It’s really the only question. Years ago I made a New Year’s resolution to never make another New Year’s resolution! It worked. No longer do I make the big proclamation. Instead I try to focus on small things, small steps that can lead to a bigger result.
It can be as simple as “I will get the trash out on time each week.” or “I will write consistently for my blog site.” Those things that are real and attainable short term, I have found, are easiest to focus on and actually accomplish.
