Headmaster’s Corner

Why do people make New Year’s Resolutions? Clearly, a “new” year seems like a new beginning. Lots of folks say: “out with the old, in with the new.” Perhaps it is as simple as giving ourselves one more help in improving our lives. Maybe, by resolving to do something better or different, we will achieve a goal that we never tackle.

So, take advantage of this moment. (It’s not too late!) Use your head, and resolve to do something that is realistic and encourages you. If you are a “C” student, why say that you will have all “A”s this grading period? That could be hard to do quickly. On the flip side, saying that you will have all grades of “C+” doesn’t seem like a real stretch. Give yourself a chance. Resolve to make a move on your own behalf. You are worth it.


I resolve for 1920:

To sit down, all by myself, and take stock of myself  personally   once a month.

To be no more charitable in viewing my own faults than I am in viewing the faults of others.

To face the facts candidly and courageously.

To address myself carefully, prayerfully, to remedying defects.
