It's that time of year when people either announce their resolutions for the new year, keep quiet and mull them over alone, or loudly denounce having them at all.
Personally, I am pro-resolution. After all, how often do we see meaningful change where the first step wasn't a firm resolve to see that change occur?
In that spirit:
Resolution 1: It's not all or nothing.
Resolution 2: Break it down.
Resolution 3: Take real baby steps.
Resolution 4: Use the upward spiral.
Resolution 5: Quit.
