I don't normally make New Year's Resolutions. That's partly because some changes make more sense at other times of the year, e.g. giving up Coke at Christmas or reviewing my finances in April (the end of the financial year). There are also some things I'd like to do which aren't entirely up to me, e.g. training courses. However, I do have a few targets for the year ahead:



I read a Cracked article recently: 5 Reasons Your New Year's Resolution Is Going to Fail. I think the items on my list avoid those traps, and should also count as "SMART" objectives.

Finally, here are Woody Guthrie's resolutions from 1942. (I don't know who he is, but someone mentioned them on Twitter and they're worth reading.)
