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: Thanks for your reply! Do your goals include changing any habits to make it easier to reach your goals? How do you go from your big intentions to specific actions?
      • Dec 28 2012: Hi Melissa,

        I thought you didn't just mentioned Derek Sivers' Talk. I don't have much habits that need to be changed or improved. my goals are unlimited as I set them every day because everyday we encounter ourselves with new challanges and overcome these challanges are (and can be) goals too.

        To answer your last question, I would simply say, I ask myself several questions (examening my goal) and if the majority of the answers are with YES, then I create paths to approuch my goal.

        This kind of approuch is used by Roman Emperors... they built roads that led to conquer the world.
        They didn-t build castles and stayed inside. They explored, they reached out to grap their goal,

        Inspiration, Flexibility are the keys to achievement.
