Here is why I don't make new year's resolutions; they don't work. I firmly believe that if you are going to accomplish something then you will set your mind to it and make it happen. A new year's resolution to lose weight is not going to work if you can't get off your ass the 364 other days of the year and do it.
Don't set yourself up for failure. If you want to make a life change then it has to be an every day commitment. Besides, it's really annoying when you go to the gym after new year's and all those resolution-weight-loss people are crowding up the parking lot and sweating all over the cardio machines.
I know everyone is doing holiday updates, but I don't technically have to be back at work until January 5th so I'm still on holiday. You wished you worked in nonprofit, oh no wait you don't because then you'd be poor to.
