I believe everyone of you has, at least once in your life, make a resolution, for the year or couple of years or even 10 years down the stretch. And, I bet we've, at least once, not able to accomplish what we've targeted. For certain resolutions - getting promotion, scoring straight As in exams, saving enough monthly to buy certain thing, getting married - we regret for not able to achieve these. For other resolutions - waking up early everyday, losing weight, lowering cholesterol level by exercising, even getting married - they're just something that don't happen and life must go on.
But, certain things are given as part (or may I say the requirements) of our life or work. And, this is mandatory - it's not a choice. Examples - coming to work on time, giving enough support (shelter, food, cloth) to our dependents, praying 5 times a day for Muslims, etc etc.
Isn't it a mandatory requirement for a Prime Minister to work hard?!! It is not a choice, Man!!! Working hard shouldn't be your resolution - where you can regret or just go on with your life - if you don't achieve it. It's a mandatory requirement for a person who assume the Prime Minister position (am not sure if he's aware that he's the Prime Minister now, though).
