What are your New Year's resolutions?

Last year, Sajeesh Ragavan posted this question at http://www.ted.com/profiles/933068

Now, having made it through the 21st of December, 2012, it seems like exactly the right time to post it again!

I've been inspired by Dr Mike Evans short video about how much more successful New Year's resolutions tend to be compared with making resolutions at other times of year. Just posted a TEDed and would welcome your thoughts and feedback: http://ed.ted.com/on/cu5IwKY6

Happy New Year!!!

      Dec 27 2012: Frustrating, right? Beyond the step where your "thinking brain" makes the resolutions, what can you do to make it easier for your "doing brain" to follow through? In the TEDed lesson, we've got some tricks that can help. It's easier to succeed when big goals are broken down into more bite sized chunks, choice points where you can plan to make a different choice than usual. What resolutions matter to you most for 2013?
