My New Year's Resolutions

The obligatory New Year’s Resolutions post.

Every year I make a New Year’s Resolution and every year I fail miserably at keeping it. Makes me wonder why I bother. I know a lot of other people don’t.

This year I have two New Year’s Resolutions:

  • Lose Weight/Get Fit. Yeah, that one. It’s the same one I’ve made for the past three years in a row. This year, however, I have a local gym membership and actually plan to use it. With a 90-minute workout 3 times a week and a more sensible diet, I can’t fail. (But we’ll see, won’t we?)
  • Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free ProductivityGet More Organized. I am organized, but not nearly enough to keep my mind from getting stressed out when a bunch of things need doing. Mike bought me a copy of Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen. (From my Amazon.com wish list.) I started reading it last night and have already learned a lot of tips for handling the outrageous number of tasks that face me every day. I’m hoping it will help me become more organized so I can live life with a cleaner desk and a clearer idea of the tasks I need to complete daily.

So what I have here are the usual self-improvement resolutions. Yours might be the same. Or they might not. Care to share them with us? The Comments link is below.
