“New Year, New You.” If only it were that easy. Self-improvement, or at least the desire for it, is a shared American hobby. It’s why so many of us make New Year’s resolutions. In fact, more people are said to make a resolution (about 40%) than watch the Super Bowl (about 33%). For all the good intentions, only a tiny fraction of us keep our resolutions. University of Scranton research suggests that just 8% of people achieve their New Year’s goals. Why is that? Making life work well challenges us to balance the discipline needed to carry something through to completion with the sense of adventure that keeps pushing us forward. We kick off our New Year’s Series suggesting that good things happen when the admiral and the adventurer work together, and we do so by better understanding the life of Moses and how he had to learn to balance these two in his life.
