I never have - I just don't have the imagination to think of anything, and few enough vices. I suppose I should eat fewer snacks and drink more water, but enforcement would be tough.

Well what would you like to accomplish?

Nothing specific. You can categorise tasks into short-term and long-term, high-priority and low-priority. The high-priority, short-term things aren't useful as resolutions because they'll presumably get done anyway. The long-term, low-priority things might make good resolutions, but they're unlikely to be anything that can be forced to happen. I'm already doing many of the things I want to do - having a new year arrive is insignificant. But I do need to focus on planning what I'm going to do the next day more regularly, rather than just putting things off all the time. I need to stick with a few things more, and not be so easily distracted. What would you like to accomplish?

For me, new year is a great time for retrospection: You have a few family reunions and enough free time to think what you have done, and what you will do. Usually my old resolutions are carried over, since many of them require more than a single year to be fulfilled, but my new resolutions include taking more care of my health, and that of my wife. All we need is reasonable amounts of love, health, money and peace. Well, we need more things, but get that quartet and the rest will come.

Boy, last year was a very interesting year.

I normally make a few, but don't usually worry too much about how 'measurable' or 'enforcable' they are. This year I've got two new ones.

I'd mostly want a loft of my own. This means getting a job and hunting one down that's close enough to school that I can walk/bike there as owning a car on campus is too expensive. Its mostly going to function as a sanctuary for myself. Play music, move around, and set up my mini library so I can start reading from it again.

I have never made any, I don't have any resolutionable vices! I'm near T-total drink wise, have never smoked (ceptin' for the wacky baccy, and that's pretty irregular), and my main goal at the moment is to got myself into an engineering apprenticeship, and that was a september resolution already! I suppose finding a new girlfriend could go down, but as I expect to be depressed enough by the length of time it'll take me to get one any way, I don't intend to add breaking a resolution to the disappointment!

I just came across what will now be my very first resolution in another thread! I will cease the pointless collection of old guitar string ends. (you know, the shiny little metal balls... Shiny...) Thank-you discussionator for showing me the light! ;)

Once upon a time, in the pre-Internet days when I was younger, I typed up the end credits from every TV programme and film I watched. I amassed a huge database of actors and actresses. I actually chose to stop on a birthday, but it's a similar resolution to yours. Of course, someone must do the same thing (or similar) today to populate the IMDb...
