A writer walks into a bar on New Year’s Day.
He takes a stool at the bar and says to the bartender, “I’ve been studying on resolutions and how to keep them.”
“And what have you learned?” the bartender asks, bringing the writer a mug of his favorite beer.
“To succeed, a resolution must have three things. It must be achievable. It must be measurable. And it must be sustainable or repeatable.” He finishes the first mug of beer.
“And so what have you decided?” the bartender asks.
“I’ve decided to have another beer. That way, I can start on a resolution that is achievable, measurable, and sustainable. At least as long as the money holds out.”
“And what happens when the money runs out?”
The writer says, “I’m going to write about it to say whether or not it’s true.”
