One thing that I no longer do is make New Year resolutions. I used to, but I found that I rapidly abandoned them in the first month of the new year. For instance, I used to promise myself every New Year's Eve that this coming year, I would work harder as a writer.
I don't. So why make the promise?
Now I just keep my eyes ahead of me and continue slowly writing. Each day takes me closer to my goals. Resolutions should be a daily thing, not just something that you do once a year.
