Woody Guthrie’s New Year’s Resolutions 1942

I only made one New Year’s Resolution — which I’ve already broken. Maybe I should have taken advice from this list by Woody Guthrie…

Business Insider:

If you’re having trouble nailing down your New Year’s resolutions, here’s a good place to start.

Seventy years ago, American folk legend Woody Guthrie scribbled in his journal a list of 33 tasks he would dedicate himself to in the coming year.  According to, he called them “Rulin’s.”

At age 31, he was in the prime of his life, with a wife and three kids, as well as a good deal of life experience, having survived the Dust Bowl to make it out to California.

As a result, it’s a pretty unbeatable list.

Good summation? “Take it Easy. But take it.”
