During this first week of January, the media is filled with "looking back at 2011" and "making resolutions for 2012". Every year we hear hundreds of people in January make a "resolution" to find "the One" in the New Year. With everyone who shares this desire with me I give
four simple words of advice -- "make it a habit". You throw your keys on the same spot on the table at the end of the day without thinking twice. It's hard to fall asleep without brushing your teeth because something feels "unfinished". You could blindfold yourself and find the way from your home to your daily Starbucks. If you can change "finding The One" into a habit, then this resolution won't fall into the black pit of broken resolution dreams. Get out a piece of paper. Write down what you are going to do each of the next fourteen days to advance your search for the right relationship. At the end of two weeks, you'll have laid the groundwork for a habit that will will carry you through 2012.
