The root of resolutions

Everyone told me their resolutions last week. It was nice. I see the sharing as an invitation (to help, to push, to hold accountable).

This week, I’m following through, and thinking about the root of resolutions: resolute.


It’s less flashy, resolute. The architect designs the building–beautiful, sweeping, innovative–and she gets most of the credit. Then the builders build it. At times, there’s challenges to figure out (getting the right mix of cement, bracing those sweeping curves) but mostly, it’s putting one brick on top of another. And then doing it again a few thousand times.

Resolutions are sexy. Being resolute is most often boring.

Last week you made resolutions. Great. This week (and beyond), be resolute.
