NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS
The beginning of a new year is the time when many people sit down and look at their lives and decide on a new course of action that can bring them more towards the attainment of their goals.
This could be in the area on one’s job or income, one’s physical abilities or appearances, the attainment of physical objects such as a car or house, or the attainment of spiritual values such as tolerance or peace.
But how many times have you made a New Year’s Resolution and then discovered later on in the year that you had abandoned your resolution? "Resolute" is defined in the Webster’s New World Collegiate dictionary as "having or showing a fixed, firm purpose; determined; resolved; unwavering". What happened to that fixed determination?
Well, many people don’t really have the tools or know-how to follow through with a major change in their life. Sometimes it’s just a matter of "self discipline" that missing. There can be other reasons why New Year’s Resolutions fall by the wayside.
But what can one do about it?
Number 1: Keep your eye on the goal. When the goal is lost, the path towards that goal will waver. Keep the goal in sight. (Definition of "goal": an object or end that one strives to attain; aim)
Number 2: Figure out some intermediate steps towards your goal. Don’t try to make it all in one step. Those intermediate steps will still get you there -- and without overwhelming you, as one huge step might. (Definition of "intermediate": being or happening between two things, places, stages, etc.; in the middle)
Number 3: Persist. There’s no better advice that one can give than to suggest that one persist on one’s own chosen path. (Definition of "persist": to refuse to give up, especially when faced with opposition or difficulty; continue firmly or steadily)
So next time you find yourself having forgotten your New Year’s Resolution, drag it out and rekindle it. Dust it off and plan a new way to handle it. It must have been a good resolution in the first place -- after all, it was you who decided upon it, and who better to know what you want in life than you.
-- Ruth A. Littman

The Longman series of dictionaries are quite popular. They come in both American and English "flavors".
The Longman Advanced American Dictionary and the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English are both excellent intermediate to advanced dictionaries, yet they are easy to use because the meanings are explained with a vocabulary of only 2,000 words. That means that foreign students learning English and other students with smaller vocabularies can still use these dictionaries without getting confused by other unknown words in the definitions.
Longman Advanced American Dictionary (Hardcover) $41.50 (was $46)
Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English (Flexicover) $30.00 (was $35)
