Although I didn't make a specific New Year's resolution - I did resolve to find work in Newbury Park last November.
It's January 31st and I'm bailing my room rental so how do I re-solve?
When I need to re-align with a goal, I step back and punt.
In football, when the team doesn't make a touchdown, they huddle and send out the kicker.
I discovered that I prefer Ventura over Newbury Park. But instead of just jumping into a room and frantically running the same play all over, I'm going to huddle at a couple different vacay spots over the next 2 weeks.
Time for new game plan, refine the target, and mostly, enjoy the process.
So - if you are still waiting to make your resolution touchdown, take a breather to huddle and reassess.
It may be time to kick a field goal.
