Do you make New Year's resolutions?

I do, but with a slight twist: I treat midnight on December 31 as a deadline rather than a start date. Otherwise, a New Year's resolution is just an excuse for putting off the effort to develop new habits.

I'm starting on mine today, but it would be nice to be able to check in with others who may be doing the same, to compare notes about struggles and to celebrate progress toward the goal, whatever it is.

If you don't make resolutions, or think resolutions are counterproductive, that's all right . . . but let that be the topic for a different thread, leaving this one open to those who are interested in starting something new.

A resolution should be something you can accomplish in the next month, a habit you can break or change or acquire, a state of affairs you yourself can bring about.

I'll start in the next thread . . . though there's something ironic about posting my resolution here . . .
