In this time of New Year's Resolutions, I will leave you with this simple quote from Roland Osborne:

You can tell how good you will become by how easy you give up!" 

For all of you vowing to lose weight, get in shape, keep your room or house clean, get better grades, pay off debt, etc ... Whatever your resolution ... let's allow the world to see how good we're going to be in 2012 by NOT giving up!
