(copied from http://rebekahradice.com/social-media-goals/)   Did your resolutions correspond to this criterias? Another way to plan goal is proposed in the Passion Planner. A map showing you in the middle of several goals in intermediate milestones. A interesting approach to visualize the Attainable and Relevant aspect. Many resolutions are about being more productive. The resoltuons could be to adopt new practices. Could be the Pomodoro technique of splitting tasks and time. Check their page on setting goals.
