I’m conflicted about this whole business of new year resolutions. On the one hand my new year resolutions (lose weight, get fitter, find some kind of solution to my impossibly flat hair) have remained monotonously unchanged since about 1995, apart from the delight I’ve taken lately in discovering power yoga (I may not be much fitter, but you should see my biceps and increased sense of smugness). And that’s a fairly typical situation, isn’t it? Resolutions are all very well on 1 January, but who sticks to them all year round?
Against that, there’s the power of visualisation. So many motivational speakers, and life coaches, and others of that ilk show us how stating what we want to happen helps to make it happen. Perhaps if we set our new year resolutions well enough, we can progress as an archives sector. And I’m feeling optimistic this new year, so I’m going with that option for now. How about one (or more than one) of these?
