New Year's resolutions are okay - in a showy sort of way. However, they are not the best way for you to improve in the coming year. For that you need New Year's Goals. Resolutions are high-level; "I want to lose weight this year." Goals are specific and can be measured; "I will exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes every day in order to lose 20 pounds during this year." It's the same for your business and your career.
