Five days into 2010 and many of us are already stumbling on our New Year’s resolutions.  You are in good company if  you didn’t make it to the gym today, finished off the holiday cookies, had one too many glasses of wine or used your favorite four letter word in today’s business meeting.
 
The key is to not give up.  Jason Sinclair Long, who delivered on his promise that he would write a short story (11-88 words determined each day by a role of the dice) on his blog every day in 2009 said, “I’m not always able  to do it. That’s the thing about doing it every day. You miss, miss, miss, miss and then you hit. Then you miss again.”
