I usually don’t make New Year’s resolutions because I find that they are easily ignored. On the other hand, throughout the year I do set new goals and try to improve my behavior bit by bit for the better.
For example, I recently committed to handling at least five pieces a paper a day from my inboxes, in an effort to keep all my stuff current. “I am on top of stuff. Stuff is not on top of me!”
