That's what you need to do with your New Year's resolutions...verbally say them outloud to a group and/or post them on your wall. One of the best things I have done over the past four years is write out my New Year's resolutions or as I call the 3-4 things at work my "Professional Focus Points." If you make this a habit each year, around August or September you start thinking of what you want to work on before the Chrstmas and New Year's holiday break. Pick three to four areas you want to work on, improve upon, or accomplish. Then tell them to a group of co-workers or friends and then post them on your wall for anyone to see. Then work on them throughout the year and watch your resolution / focus points improve or make happen. Accountability, it's a great way to model the way for others.
