What are your New Year's resolutions, and how do you set yourself up for success?

I don't really make resolutions for the year, like "By the end of 2014, I will have accomplished ___". Instead, I've got this list that I revise at the beginning of every year, of life goals, changes and plans. Some things are short term, some a bit longer. This list has been going on since 2006, and I've accomplished maybe half a dozen things on it. I always keep the long term ones on it, just to see what all I've got done. I'll be turning 25 this year, and two my life goals were to get married and have a child by the time I turned 25. I post the list on our pin board, and my husband gets to see what I'm striving for, and he helps me out, keeps me on course. I'm someone that really needs accountability to someone, even if its something for myself.

A couple of my list items this year are: finish this book I've been working on for years, buy a house, and not let my weight get over 200lbs this pregnancy.

Good luck all, happy new year!

My resolution is to not make a resolution, and I usually keep it.

I'm with you Wolfie. My resolution is not to make resolutions.

My resolutions:
1. To achieve greater clarity of mind
2. To publish my first novel
3. To get one of my short stories published, preferably in Granta
4. To stop crying every time I get angry or frustrated.

Mine are all continuations really.

1. Continue being a vegan, exercising, taking care of my body.

2. Continue evolving my writing - both in terms of making money and in becoming better.

3. Move to the west coast (hopefully PNW) - this is my only new one, and I'd be in 7th heaven if I realized it!

  1. Buy a house.
  2. Finish my album.
  3. Get my music out to the masses.

Mine are normally short term goals so I tend to have resolutions throughout the year, however this year I've found that I have some long term resolutions too.

1. Live the lifestyle that I want to live and promote.

2. Have a "successful" Beachbody coaching practice by the end of 2014.

- Successful means that I've positively changed at least one person's health through coaching, nutrition, and fitness (i.e. Beachbody) programs.  This is especially important to me because I'm going back to college to become a nutritionist since I have this strong desire to help people and defeat type II diabetes, which is having a field day with my family and this country.

3. Work on my personal development daily.

4. Do something that I've dreamed of doing and sticking with it instead of letting it slide: making YouTube gameplay videos.

The only one of these that I'm worried about not following through with is the last one but it's an idea that's been on my mind for years no so I figured I should invest the time. :)

Mines to get organized :)

Omg, I need to add that to my list. My office/studio is a disaster...

To finish my YA novella is one of them. I am feeling a bit stuck on it. >>; and be a better person
