25 New Year's Resolutions You Should Make

It's that time of the year again. A time to look back at how the past year went and a time to plan and make goals for the upcoming year. 

But before you start setting goals for next year here are 25 things you should commit to doing this year to give you a fresh start at success in 2013:

  1. Get your passport. You never know when a great travelling opportunity may arise. You can download the passport application here.
  2. Read your preferred religious text all the way through. If you claim to belong to a religion it's about time you read your holy book all the way through if you haven't already. Break it down day by day so that it's manageable. The best site for the Bible is here. 
  3. Register or renew your domain names. If you don't own your own name as a .com it's about time you went out and bought it.
  4. Check your credit score.
  5. Go to the dentist.
  6. Buy new socks and underwear. And remember that white socks are only for yard work and working out at the gym.
  7. Put together a savings plan.
  8. Put everything on a calendar. Google Calendar or iCloud are both great.
  9. Organize your closet. Pull your old clothes out and donate them to charity.
  10. Organize your computer files and backup up the important ones online.
  11. Put up a Linkedin profile.
  12. Make plans to travel at least one place in 2013.
  13. Put together a list of quotes that inspire you.
  14. Set aside a few minutes each week to meditate.
  15. Update your rèsumè.
  16. Write down your bucket list.
  17. Write down all of your account #’s, logins and passwords in a secure place.
  18. Get a safety deposit box at the bank.
  19. Put together a list of books to read.
  20. Buy a paper shredder and get rid of old documents.
  21. Buy a scanner and scan important files.
  22. Put together a plan to learn things that will make you better at your current job.
  23. Make sure your computer and antivirus are up to date.
  24. Backup your phone #’s and contact info.
  25. Write down your list of goals for 2013.

Wishing you the best in 2013! -Shawn
