For the last 5 years I have not made New Year’s resolution. I read an article that many people do not stick to their resolutions because there is no accountability. So instead of resolutions I now make yearly to-do lists.  I print it out and put it on my bedroom wall. Every time I accomplish something on the list I make a check mark next to it, because check marks are so satisfying. Below is my list for 2017.

2017 To Do List

Go camping

Get a massage

Get a facial

Try 3 new hikes

Take an art class

Save $500 for travel

Save $1000 for moving

Get a promotion

Move to California

Give Blood

Visit Jessica

I have never had a year that I completed every single thing on my list, but I really want to this year. Posting this is just one more way for me to hold myself accountable.
