I have stuck with exactly zero New Year’s Resolutions. That’s not to say I haven’t made any positive life changes. I just haven’t been able to make any life changes based on a random calendar day. But this year, for the sake of “I told you so’s”, I am going to give it a go. My New Year’s Resolution: To ride more. Shocking isn’t it. It shouldn’t really be that hard, right? It’s not like I am trying to quit smoking or lose weight. I’m not trying to get an advanced college degree or hike Mount Everest. I am just trying to ride more. So why does this resolution seem so difficult to attain?
Life is merely a collection of seconds. Actually, life is a collection of millions of seconds strung together. My definition of living life to the fullest is using those seconds wisely to create the best possible experience. As we get older we add more things to our lives. More responsibilities at work, rent/mortgages, bills, family, etc. These things take up a bunch of those seconds leaving precious few for skateboarding, snowboard, and surfing. In essence, my New Year’s Resolution is to manage those seconds more carefully to ensure that I can shred more. Managing time is one of life’s most difficult aspects. I think I am up to the task…especially when the rewards are so great.
Here are the rest of the guys’ resolutions:
Stormy Pruett – “skate more and pay my car down”
Brian Johnson – “go back to school”
Jake Roberts – “why wait until New Year’s to make a resolution?”
Charlie Brown – “skate more and stop being lazy”
Max Yoder – “have a good time and drink more water”
