            The New Year is a time for resolutions.
            Mentally, at least, most of us could com-
            pile f.mp3idable lists of ' do's' and' don'ts '.
            The same old favourites recur year in
            year out with monotonous regularity. We
            resolve to get up earlier each morning,
            eat less, find more time to play with the
            children, do a thousand and one jobs
            about the house, be nice to people we
            don't like, drive carefully, and take the
            dog for a walk every day. Past experience
            has taught us that certain accomplish-
            ments are beyond attainment. If we
            remain inveterate smokers, it is only
            because we have so often experienced the
            frustration that results from failure. Most
            of us fail in our efforts at self-improvement because our schemes are too am-
            bitious and we never have time to carry them out. We also make the fundamental
            error of announcing our resolutions to everybody so that we look even more
            foolish when we slip back into our bad old ways. Aware of these pitfalls, this
            year I attempted to keep my resolutions to myself. I limited myself to two modest
            ambitions: to do physical exercises every morning and to read more of an
            evening. An all-night party on New Year's Eve,provided me with a good excuse
            for not carrying out either of these new resolutions on the first day of the year,
            but on the second, I applied myself assiduously to the task.
            The daily exercises lasted only eleven minutes and I proposed to do them
            early in the morning before anyone had got up. The self-discipline required to
            drag myself out of bed eleven minutes earlier than usual was considerable.
            Nevertheless, I managed to creep down into the living-room for two days before
            anyone found me out. After jumping about on the carpet and twisting the
            human frame into uncomfortable positions, I sat down at the breakfast table in
            an exhausted condition. It was this that betrayed me. The next morning the
            whole family trooped in to watch the perf.mp3ance. That was really unsettling
            but I fended off the taunts and jibes of the family good-humouredly and soon
            everybody got used to the idea. However, my enthusiasm waned. The,time I
            spent at exercises gradually diminished. Little by little the eleven minutes fell to
            zero. By January 10th, I was back to where I had started from. I argued that if I
            spent less time exhausting myself at exercises in the morning I would keep my
            mind fresh for reading when I got home from work. Resisting the hypnotizing
            effect of television, I sat in my room for a few evenings with my eyes glued to a
            book, one night, however, feeling cold and lonely, I went downstairs and sat in
            front of the television pretending to read. That proved to be my undoing, for I
            soon got back to my old bad habit of dozing off in front of the screen. I still
            haven't given up my resolution to do more reading. In fact, I have just bought a
            book entitled 'How to Read a Thousand Words a Minute'. Perhaps it will
            solve my problem, but I just haven't had time to read it!
