New Year 2014 Resolutions For Engineers - Share yours here!

So, 2013 has come to an end. A lot of us are looking at 2014 with dreamy eyes and a lot of expectations.
As engineers a lot of people have simple ideas about new year resolutions. It could be anything from writing a diary to building the most advanced telescope.
Resolutions are in fact a matter of debate for a lot of Crazy Engineers here.

We have seen engineers here say things like - New Year's eve isn't something to celebrate or resolutions for new year's never last or 'What's the big deal?"
Some people even go to the extent to say - "Yeah, the calendar will change, but I won't."

I think the following comic strip from Cyanide and Happiness reflects the thoughts of a lot of friends of mine -


So, let us deal with it. The next year will be spent in surviving through tough times and emerging as winners in our own eyes. Resolutions may not last, but having one for yourself is a good idea, because it gives rise to the hope that you're trying to do something better for yourself. In fact you're trying to better yourself.

If you think your resolutions aren't going to be like this -

    @those who are looking at exercising in 2014, is this a probability? -

    Right! Fitness related resolutions are most common - because everyone knows it should be top priority; but it takes 'efforts' πŸ˜‰ . The tag line on my gym's t-shirt reads: If fitness came in a bottle; everyone would have it.
