How to make and keep your New Year's resolutions

Blogger Alexander Kharlamov has some good advice for New Year's resolvers who want to stay resolute beyond January 1st. For example, break down your resolutions into small actions:

Separate your NYR list from your ToDo list. If your New Year's Resolution to lose weight includes an action to "buy gym membership", take it off your NYR list and put it on your ToDo list - and then, of course, execute it.

Much like the way GTD distinguishes between projects and next actions, goals can be achieved on any day of the year by just writing them up and breaking them down. Have a safe and happy New Year! See you on January 2nd.
