What really helps is to make specific targets rather than vague goals so they're more achievable and you can tick them off e.g. instead of 'take up running', I wrote 'got for a run every fortnight' (that habit never stuck).

I'll be making a real New Year's Resolution list - I never keep my New Year's list in a safe spot and always lose them, so I'll post it on the blog. I don't take them super-seriously, it's just a way of seeing what kind of person you want to become and it's interesting to look back on in the future. I do like using them as a checklist of goals in order to keep me focused.
Let me know if you have any resolutions or want to talk about any of the goals listed above!
