I'm not a big fan of making New Year's resolutions. I'd rather apply certain principles to my life and live them every day. Sometimes, however, I need a reminder. Holly Lisle's resolutions did just that.

I'm going to blatantly steal them, because they are that awesome. In fact, a couple of them are principles that I apply to my life now. Others merely round them out.

Thanks, Holly, for the kick.

TAO, which includings FAMILY, WORK, and SPIRIT

  • Chop wood, carry water.
  • Give thanks each day.
  • Be here now.
  • Look for lessons.
  • In all things, be the river, not the stone.


  • Breathe consciously.
  • Move with intent.
  • Each moment is its own victory—no past failures, no future glories.


  • Do every project first and foremost for the love of it.
  • Work first.
  • Simplify the day.
  • Remember that rest, too, has a purpose.
