I always say that I never resolve to do anything, because if I do I set myself up for failure. Not only that but a resolution has to be written with a couple of whereas clauses, and a “be it further” or two. Instead, I make a list of things I’d like accomplish in the NewYear, if I only get a few done like last year, it’s fine. If I get half done, that would be cool! If I somehow manage to get them all done, that would be extra epic! That being said, here are my list of goals for 2018.
Read at least one book a month, I’d prefer 2 but we’ll start with one just to see how things go.
Make a to-do list each day, each week, and each month.
