Tea Bag Karma

Good Earth tea bag quote of the day: "Always bear in mind that your resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing." - Abraham Lincoln.

No kidding, that was on today's tea bag. Combined with the William James quote I had after a hard workout last week, I've had this crazy tea bag karma over the past couple of weeks - I'm like the Earl Hickey of tea drinkers.

As I've been reading people's resolutions this week, I think Lincoln's point is valid: It doesn't really matter what your goal for 2006 is. All that matters is that you are determined to succeed in reaching it. If you are determined enough, you'll make the appropriate changes in your life and/or training to progress toward that goal.

If you want to, you can use the old goal as a stepping stone to something even grander in the years to follow. As long as you have strong mental resolve, your chances of finding success are overwhelmingly positive.

So good luck to everybody in reaching their goals for 2006. I'll look forward to hearing about your progress.

On a completely unrelated topic, my wife and I have a tradition that dates back to before we were married, of doing a puzzle together on New Year's Eve. We used to do easy puzzles that we would finish in one night, but in recent years we have chosen increasingly challenging puzzles that have and taken us longer than a single night - either that or we're steadily becoming dumber on an annual basis.

Anyway, we spent about five hours on this one last night, and we're probably only 15% done. I'll post another picture as we get closer to finishing - but you can already tell the image, can't you?

Enough for now. Time to get back to the puzzle.

I better not let my wife see this post, or else I will be doing puzzles instead of out running trails on New Years Eve. I bid you a wonderful 2006.

mona lisa, right? enjoy the puzzle time with your wife!
