Like many people, I tend to enter each new year full of hope and desires for self improvement. What else would you expect from a person who called this blog Mosaic a Day! But also like most people, I tend to start out with the best intentions, and then this thing called life happens, and the habit doesn't stick. I recently read that the familiar "it takes 21 day to form a new habit" is completely wrong, and while some people can create new habits in as little as 18 days, some people take up to 250! Yikes! The average, apparently, is a less scary sounding 66 days. More importantly, the habit needs to be measurable, doable, specific, and it's a good idea to have someone hold you accountable. So for example, rather than saying you'll never eat out, you're more likely to succeed if you decide to cook one more healthy meal at home each week, and tell someone that you plan to do this so they'll ask you about it. It's definitely not as daunting that way.

I usually set personal resolutions, but this year I'm doing a business one as well. And all of YOU get to hold me accountable. My resolution⏤and here I am, still making good on it two weeks into the year—is to do two blog posts a week. Obviously this is two fold: I have to not only write the blog twice a week, I actually have to produce two pieces of jewelry a week, which is no small feat in itself. But I figure I already make about 80 pieces a year, occasionally more, so making an extra 1.5 pieces a month should be doable, as should sitting down to write a couple times a week, even if I have to bribe myself with a glass of wine. 

As for the personal ones? I'm changing it up from my usual "run/exercise more, lose 5 lbs" unmeasureable, vague mumbo-jumbo. I've decided to improve my brain this year, and intend to swap out one book a month from the escapist nonsense I tend to read for something more literary. First up: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Which I better get started on, as the end of January will be here in no time!

So wish me luck, and feel free to hold me accountable.
