I don't care who you are or where you are in your life...when New Years rolls around, we ALL entertain the idea of New Year's resolutions. Should we make them? Should we keep them a secret or announce them to the world? Are they possible to keep?

Some people want to make small changes. Others may be considering a sweeping reform of their life and the path they are following. If you fall into the latter group, maybe this will be of interest to you!
