As we approach the beginning of another New Year, it’s common practice for many of us to make New Year’s resolutions. Unfortunately, we often break them before the first day of the New Year is done.
Instead of making one you know will be impossible to keep, how about this one from Benjamin Franklin?
In the 1738 Poor Richard’s Almanack (writing under his alias Richard Saunders), Franklin wrote:
Each year one vicious habit rooted out,
In time might make the worst Man good throughout.
Here’s wishing you a healthy, prosperous and one-bad-habit-less New Year!
