I’ve never really been much of the New Year’s resolution type — what is so magical about January 1 for deciding to make a change?

Nevertheless, this year I decided to jump on the bandwagon and come up with one. But, recognizing that the typically low success rate can be increased when the resolution is made public — kind of a built in accountability or humiliation-avoidance phenomenon — I’ll boldly make it here. Brace yourselves: I resolve to start making New Year’s resolutions.

As I see it, this gives me an entire year to plan for my next New Year’s resolution.

What was your New Year’s resolution last year? And, how did that go for you?

Perhaps a better question might be: What are your 2013 goals and how do you plan to realize them?
