Ah, January 1st – the arbitrary start point to what will be many failed attempts to change habits and lifestyles.  I don’t know the first thing about the psychology behind making habits stick, but I’ve always found that it’s better to start small and have minor adjustments to your routine snowball into total life changes.  And after last night, it’s safe to say that Jose Canseco agrees.

Usually one of the more vulnerable, volatile and pathetic celebrity Tweeters, Jose Canseco completely turned his life around already in 2013.  Instead of posting his typical nonsensical and delusional lunacy (like his December 31st Tweet sending hugs to President Obama and Speaker Boehner and offering his assistance in avoiding the Fiscal Cliff – and no, he doesn’t do these things in jest), Canseco posted a completely rational and attainable set of goals for the new year.  He only has 10 (or 11), and I can’t think of a more appropriate way to exemplify the “baby steps” approach to habitual change I practice myself.

Oh, and if you somehow don’t know who Jose Canseco is, he’s a former Major League Baseball player who is most famous for his steroid abuse and is slightly less famous for thinking he’s a real life superhero whose superpower I guess would be having almost 500k people following him on Twitter with approximately zero of his followers not despising him. And he’s also Twitter-famous for drawing the ire of former wrestling star The Iron Sheik, a man who spent the 1980s and part of the 90s waving an Iranian flag and detesting America in front of audiences of tens of thousands of Americans.  The Twitterverse sides with Sheikie, and it’s not even a debate.

The only comment I’ll make is that psychologists would have a field day analyzing what happens in his head between #4 and [the first] #5.  I think these are best enjoyed without disruptive commentary though, so…enjoy.
