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 28 2012: eat less salt. spend more time writing fiction. it will be a gradual process with successes and failures. aim for the long term improvement, don't focus on the short term failures.

      Jan 3 2013: I love the concept of reframing failures as learning experiences or "productive failures." I love Thomas Edison's quote from the period when he was trying to invent the lightbulb: “I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."
