I’ve never been one to make New Year’s Resolutions, for a number of reasons:
- A New Year’s Resolution is generally an ineffective way to reach a goal, as most people make their resolutions too generic.

We all spend at least part of our lives daydreaming about what could be. That’s no way to live… always wondering what could be.
