I’m not a fan of all of these “Best of…” lists. Jon Gabriel pretty much makes the same point a little more elegantly here.
My New Year’s ritual is simple: I think about the dumb things I did last year and try not to do them again. I don’t pretend that I won’t do dumb things in 2015, but I want them to be different dumb things.
Among the dumb things I did in 2014:
1. Convinced myself that the “Low Fuel” light in my car really means “You Can Go Another 10 Miles.”
2. Attempted to change a high lightbulb with a ladder while wearing flipflops.
3. Agreed to write an article for someone. For free.
4. Bought “organic” peanut butter instead of Creamy Jiff.
I did other dumb stuff, too. (Some really dumb stuff that I choose to remain silent about….). But if next year’s list doesn’t include any of these things, I will consider it a rousing success.
What dumb stuff won’t you be doing next year?
