At this time of year I typically list a number of New Year's resolutions. These are usually big goals. Generally speaking, I accomplish some but not all of them, or just portions of them. This year I'm changing things up by posting a list of things I would like to do in the New Year. Some are big, some are small, but all are important.
In the spirit of determination I have written these as commands to myself.
