New Year's Resolutions

A reference guide

Once the partying is done and the hangovers cured, the guilt starts to set in. The daunting realization that it's the beginning of another year—a year you promised to make better than the last. To make this compact, clip-out New Year's Resolutions Guide as productive as possible, here's a bit of preliminary advice.

1) Your resolution should be something you have control over. Don't resolve to win the lottery. That's a wish, not a resolution.

2) Tell yourself you can accomplish your goal. It may sound silly, but part of doing something is believing you can do it.

3) Don't be afraid to ask for help. You are not alone in your battle. Find support groups, talk to your loved ones and seek out others with the same goals.

All right, here's a random, obviously incomplete list of organizations you might consider contacting to help make 2006 a successful new year.
