  “Every New Year’s Eve for the last thirty years I’ve resolved to have more self-discipline, but never bothered to learn the process to achieve it. Thanks for laying it out so succinctly. I can see that I have made every mistake you mentioned in Episode 9, so I’ll try again with those in mind. It’s August …. but Happy New Year!!”
