Sharpest Tool

New resolutions don’t have to be confined to New Year’s Day. We have the power to make changes to our habits and our routines, so we can make new habits and routines.

For example, I once made a resolution in July to not throw snowballs at anyone for a month. I absolutely conquered that one. It was like I was born to make resolutions.

Then there was another time when I resolved to learn another language. I decided to learn Australian. Now I speak it fluently.

I don’t want to be addicted to anything. Addictions are things you can live without but feel like you can’t possibly, not even for a minute. I realized I think every day, all day I’m thinking, so I better best that habit before it controls me. Then I quit. It feels good. I been off the thought horse for four days now.

Y’all oughta try it.

This is where I'm supposed to brag about how I've written seven novels, twelve screenplays, thousands of short stories, four self-help books, and one children's early-reader, but I'd rather stay humble. You can find out about things I've written or follow my barchive (web archive, aka 'blog) at or follow me on twitter @kurt_gailey. I love sports and music and books, so if you're an athlete or in a band or you're a writer, give me a follow and I'll most likely follow you back. I've even been known to promote other people's projects.
