New Year's resolutions

Yup, it's that time of year again! Why not try benb's tip, and see how many New Year's resolutions you can keep in the coming year? You've got Remember The Milk to help! :)

It's nearly the end of the year, and I decided to enter my new years resolutions into RTM.

  • Lose 2 stone -resolution 31/12/10
  • Play guitar 2-3 times a week for 30 mins -resolution 31/12/10
  • Take 1 good photo every day in 2010 -resolution 31/12/10

I tagged each one with -resolution ("-" is my prefix for categories) with a due date of 31-Dec-2010 (if it was one with an earlier date, or a review date other than the end of the year, set it as appropriate).

When they come due I can review and see how I did. If I really wanted to be nagged, I would set them up as repeating tasks every week or month.
