Are you excited? I’m excited! I did my New Year’s planning yesterday, because I just couldn’t wait any longer. It reinforced my strong sense that most people fail at resolutions due to their planning process, rather than anything inherent in New Year’s Resolutions themselves. As a culture, either we’re saying that most of us have weak characters or that it’s humanly impossible to make positive changes. Since New Year’s Resolutions work for me, either pop culture is wrong or I’m some kind of mutant.
Either way, please tune in to my webinar!
Now, let me try to anticipate some questions.
Q: Why a random weeknight?
A: Closest I could get to New Year’s Eve without trampling on other December holidays.
Q: Why 6 PM Pacific Standard Time?
A: There is no time slot that would work for all of my readers around the globe. I tried to pick a time that would work for North Americans and Australians.
Q: What if I can’t watch it then?
A: I’ll offer a recording for download later.
Q: Do I have to sign up somehow?
A: Nope. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel, though, in case I do more webinars in future.
Q: I hate New Year’s Resolutions.
A: That’s not a question. You are excused.
Q: I disagree with you.
A: Good! Nobody agrees with everything I say, including me. I wouldn’t want it any other way. Mine is one contrarian opinion among hundreds of millions, and my expectation is that I’ll be received merely as one voice in the choir.
Q: What next?
A: I’m offering a workshop that will drop this weekend. Those who want to try a New Year’s planning process are invited to join. Details to follow. Tonight’s webinar is an opportunity to hear what I sound like and get a sample of my teaching style.
Throughout this week, I’ll be posting about the turn of the year. To follow:

As a rule, I don’t update this blog on holidays. New Year’s Day is my one exception. Let’s start the New Year off right!
