Cost-First New Year’s Resolutions

  • Instead of “lose X pounds” or “work out Y times per week,” set a goal like “somebody will make fun of me for being a picky eater.”
  • Instead of “read more books,” set a goal like “I’ll be the last of my friends to see the end of Game of Thrones.”
  • Instead of “save $X,” promise yourself that 2019’s vacation will be much crappier than last year’s.
  • Instead of “waste less time online,” target “In 2019, least one person on Twitter, Instagram, or Reddit will ask ‘What ever happened to’ me.”
