Comic: New Year's Resolutions

Making a resolution in the New Year to improve your career makes sense. This one, not so much.

A resolution not worth keeping.

My resolution is to make a backbone framework of IOT in my own home which I have been postponing since 2014. And yes. I also want to lose 30 pounds. I can safely bet that the probability of these two events taking place is 50%.

And I also want to make more time out of work so that I can spend it with my family. I wonder why that isn't on anybody's resolutions?

I call New Year's resolutions our own personal campaign promise. As we know with most politicians those campaign promises rarely come to fruition. If we want to avoid the letdown we need to set achievable goals short term dates not the entire year and check point our progress so we can get back on track. Think of it as your own quarterly earning call!

Re: While we're at it...
I like your take on resolutions. I try to set daily and weekly goals. Just little things I would like to accomplish in addition to my normal daily routines. It is more satisfying to me to have a a bunch of small successes (or failures) than one big failure...lol
