Excerpt from The Kodak Salesman, 1923, Vol. 8
If you feel the solemn urge to make some resolutions, skip Jan uary first and make them on the second. The mortal weakness of the whole resolutionist movement is that it begins with a holiday.
The average man, and most of us live in his block. Lies abed the first morning of the new year and vows to take regular calisthenics and forego forenoon smoking every day - except that particular one of course, which is a holiday. The following morning he gets up too late for his exercises and in the course of events consumes his daily dozen of cigars. So the banner of his resolution is riddled at the be ginning.
January second. The first working day of the new year, is a good time to take stock of one's equipment and make a fresh start at a quick ened pace.
And don't be content with just an indefinite vow to improve your methods. You'll accomplish more by resolving to make each month of 1923 beat that. Of 1922, to tackle the new year in twelve instalments and make the most of each as it arrives.
