Survive another year :-)

I don't subscribe to New Year's Resolutions, preferring to make them throughout the whole year (and documented in my planner). If it's not a habitual process, there's little chance of making it stick. I think most people in this forum can understand that :-)

Just my 2 cents...

Happy New Year,

Ready for anything, I hope

Totally agree. Most of my resolutions are already on my planner, any new ones will go on my inbox for processing, not on a new year resolutions list. If I did that, I would give up in 3 weeks. On my project list, they will get done when I get to them.

Immediate Change

I believe the time to make changes is the very moment you think of them, if possible.

I'm curious as to how those of you who implement them into your planner go about it. Is it just a list of to-dos or a recurring task? Do you list them as projects? Do you limit your resolutions or is it the sky's the limit?

I don't do resolutions either

for pretty much the same reasons. Why wait until the new year to make a resolution for yourself? I have a form for my planner that I call "things to work on" - there's one for every month, and I write down things I want to improve on. I've got it divided like so: Home, work, self, creativity, and a new thing to try.

I resolve to update the Dynamic Templates

But then I do that anyway, don't I ?

goals, not resolutions

I tend to not do New Year's Resolutions. If there is a change you feel you need to make in your life, why wait until the New Year to do it? One year I joked that I was doing "Mid-October resolutions."

I do find it is a great time to look back at the last year and figure out what you can do better for the next year. Here are mine (with the details I'd rather not make public left out)

1. Get down to a healthy weight so I can be healthy and more energetic.

2. Start up some kind of side business. Right now I'm leaning toward iPhone application development.

3. Read one book about spiritual growth and one book about success each month.

4. One night a week, turn off/tune out all distractions and spend time with my family. After they are asleep I can play on the computer :-)

I have a "Goals" section in my planner where I am keeping track of my progress on these goals. I have one page with all the goals written out. Then one page per goal with my action plans for each that requires a plan. And then I just start writing down info related to that goal. For example, for #1 I am writing down everything I eat and every time I exercise.
