I hate when that happens!

I find with these types of resolutions that it's best to resolve for a weekly or even monthly goal (7 sentences a week; 30 sentences a month). Because with everything else going on in Real Life it is too hard to keep a daily commitment. For instance, last year, I resolved to spend 15 minutes a day on Sometimes a week would go by without me having the chance to work on it, but because it was a modest commitment (1 hour 45 minutes a week) I could catch up with the entire commitment on the weekend. I tracked my performance in a spreadsheet so I could see how I was doing. Best regards, Jeffrey
