The challenge makes all the more rewarding.

Don't put it off until later... procrastinate now!

Meh.

I'm a Delta and happy I don't have to deal with all the decision making that the Alphas and Betas have to deal with.

I really don't think it's possible, but I can think about trying.

I have had this down for decades.

lock in commitments to self-betterment that won't require vigilance or attention in the year ahead

So, not commitments, just things you need to do? Your new year's resolution is to do a one-time thing that you need to do? That's not a new year's resolution. That's you not procrastinating.

I don't make yearly goals, at least not in the winter when it's farking cold and dull.

You losers do less. I'm going to do more.

Next year, you can worship me as your God.

Heard on the radio yesterday: "May your troubles in 2013 last as long as your New Years resolutions."

I've never failed to uphold my annual resolution: make no New Year's resolutions

Lounge like you mean it! Dammitt!!

That's been my resolution for the past 10 years. At this rate, I'll have to put myself into a coma on Jan 1st, 2017 to keep my streak of kept resolutions alive.

And really, what's more important than that?

Finally a resolution Congress can approve.
 
2013-01-01 09:55:41 PM
I don't know. That sounds like a lot of work.

Thank Ford for soma, amirite?

I'm in this cycle right now: a busy person getting busier, and falling into a vicious cycle of getting further and further behind.

I resolve to be a bad MotherFarker. Oops - too late.
 
2013-01-01 11:59:57 PM
In 2013 I am actually resolving to do more. I resolve to flip off more people! Oh, and to drink more scotch.

Do one thing at a time, take life easy and don't sweat the small stuff. Life will be better for you then.

We could, but that would require effort.

I would simplify my life, but you see...well, it's complicated.

It's not really procrastination if you only say you're going to do something.

Why do you think I'm on Fark?
 
2013-01-02 10:42:15 AM
This year I resolve to work on my procrastinating. No longer will I put off until tomorrow what I can put off until the day AFTER tomorrow. I'm turning over a new leaf.......tomorrow......or maybe the day after

The GOP House was WAY ahead of the curve on this one.

My only Big Thing this year will be to have a T-shirt made:

"Pissing people off since 1963."

Anyone got any additional ideas along this line of thinking?
