Good intentions are nice. But I'm sure you know what the relationship between “nice” and “shitty” is.

Good intentions alone won't do you much good. They bring you nothing to be exact. They are just a few dreams and wishful thinking running through your head. Your resolutions are nothing more than the first small step in the right direction. But if you're serious about what you want, you need more.

Therefore, determine concrete goals and tangible measures for your favorite resolutions that you can implement quickly and easily. This is the only way you can make the leap from dream to reality and really get off to a good start in the new year. If you need help with that, I'd be happy to give you a hand.
