Discussion on: Do You Make New Year's Resolutions?

I like making new years resolutions. I view it as an opportunity to reflect on what direction I want to take my life, rather than always chasing the "next" thing. (In "Getting Things Done" terms, this is Horizon-3 thinking.) I also enjoy using it as a conversation-starter.

And, my favorite part, I keep all my resolutions year-to-year in a dedicated notebook, which allows me to look back at how my priorities have changed through the years.

Haha, so new year's resolutions are serious business for you?

I wouldn't go that far. I find them to be helpful and enjoyable.
