My resolution is to do everything in my life better than last year. I think the key to successful New Year's resolutions is to make them reachable. I have big goals too, such as getting a handle on ongoing health issues. However I think even those can be reached by just trying to do things a little bitter better than last year.

My New Year's resolutions are to lose a few more pounds and to save up enough money for a return trip to Europe (I haven't been in six years after many years of twice-annual trips).

Eat less. Exercise more. Only joking. I think for me my New Year's Resolution involves a combination of personal and professional goals. I have just returned to this country after working abroad for some years, and as a result, I want to spend this year updating my skills in teaching but also in technology.

My resolutions all center around how to best use my time. I am a procrastinator, so I rush to do many things and don't do them well. I put things off until they become a huge burden. I waste small amounts of time and then wonder where my time went. My goal is to be more "present" in my use of time -- asking myself what I SHOULD be or COULD be doing instead of standing around looking at my stacks of essays to grade or my Wordswithfriends screen on my phone.

My New Year's resolution (while I typically do not make them) is to take better care of myself physically. I also want to get a better control on the financial end of my life. Outside of that, I simply want to live everyday showing the ones around me how much I love them. Every day is a gift and I want to take advantage of that gift each and every day.

Mine is to read the literature I have downloaded to my iphone at last! I have two ibooks ready to read (Villette by Charlotte Bronte and The Letters of Pliny) - I had great aspirations to read them quickly but they have been there for three months now! I also intend to take my iphone usage firmly in hand as the bills have suddenly shot up due to data usage.

I don't really have one, except perhaps to continue to broaden my knowlege by participating in eNotes, which gives me a good incentive to read texts I might not otherwise read and think about issues I might not otherwise consider.
