Once upon a time, there was a man named Bob who had a big problem with keeping New Year's resolutions. Every year, he would make grand promises to himself to lose weight, exercise more, and eat healthier, but by the end of January, he always found himself back to his old ways. Bob would tell himself, “I'll start again tomorrow,” and by tomorrow, he meant next year.

One year, Bob decided that enough was enough. He was determined to make a change and stick to his resolution. This time he said to himself, “NO more tomorrows! Today is the day”. So, he came up with a unique plan. He decided to make a public declaration of his resolution by announcing it to his friends and family and even posting it on social media.

Bob's resolution was to lose 30 pounds in one year. His friends and family were skeptical, but they supported him nonetheless. Bob started off strong, hitting the gym every day and eating salads for every meal. But as the weeks went on, the weight loss slowed down, and Bob's determination began to waver. He even started dreaming of donuts and pizza.

Just as he was about to give up, Bob remembered his public declaration. He thought about how disappointed he would be if he failed in front of everyone who knew about his resolution. So, Bob decided to take a different approach. Instead of focusing on the end goal of losing 30 pounds, he decided to focus on the small changes he was making to his lifestyle. He started to enjoy working out and found healthier ways to make his favorite foods like cauliflower pizza and lettuce wrap burgers.

Slowly but surely, Bob started to see results. He was losing weight, but more importantly, he felt better about himself. His friends and family noticed the changes in him and were amazed by his progress, and his jokes improved too.

A year later, Bob had not only lost the 30 pounds he had set out to lose, but he had also gained a new outlook on life. He had learned that the key to keeping a resolution was not to focus on the end goal but to focus on the small changes that led to it. He even started a fitness YouTube channel where he would share his journey and the recipes he created (and three people even subscribed to it!).

From that day on, Bob never had a problem keeping his New Year's resolutions. And every year, he would remind himself of the small changes that led to his success. He never stopped dreaming of donuts and pizza, but now he knew how to enjoy them in moderation.

Most people claim to love some good old fashioned R and R but do everything possible to avoid peace and quiet. Why? People tend to fear peace, quiet and solitude because fears long buried emerge for exploring the moment rampant distractions dissolve. Distractions always disappear in serene environments solely because busy settings feed on distractions.
