Lets look at it this way.
Most people who make new years resolutions are looking to either lose weight, exercise more, sort out their financial debt, have a more rewarding job, eat more healthy foods, smoke less cigarettes (or possibly quit), stop procrastinating, be more active, get things done, stress less about smaller things or simply...make more time for themselves to enjoy those smaller (and possibly do bigger) things.
At least 50% of us will fail and in a way, we set ourselves up to fail. The first time we break the resolution we feel weak and therefore feel like a failure. The trick is to fail but not give up entirely.
I want to lose weight and exercise more. (All I can do is try)
I want to get out of financial debt and have a more rewarding job (Who doesn't want that?)
I want to smoke less cigarettes, or quit (again) entirely (Tough, but past experience says not impossible!!)
I want to stop procrastinating and be more active (This is my first post since October, so this is a start)
I want to stress less about the small stuff and enjoy what might lay ahead (Simple)
So, no goals for me. In fact, I'm going to call them 'non-goals', but I am going to try new things and I'm bound to fail trying but I'll keep at it until I am happy one way or the other.
Right now though, what will really make me happy, is if I can just sort out my cable drawer.
Which looks a lot like this when trying to find that weird USB cable that only works with my old camera.

(A hoarders dying words if I ever heard them)
So, by using some empty kitchen roll or toilet roll holders to store your cables, you are actually doing a small bit for recycling and managing to organize a small part of your chaotic 21st Century life.

One bite at a time.
Perhaps that's not such a great example if I'm planning on losing some weight!
