Zen Habits (one of my fave bloggers) Best ideas for "Creating an Amazing 2015' My number 1 "Create habits, not goals or resolutions. Resolutions are like wishful thinking, that fade away inevitably as the year’s newness wears off. Goals are great, but it’s hard to juggle 5-10 new goals when you have a lot of other things always going on. Instead, focus on one new habit at a time, and give it your full attention, until it becomes automatic. Then do another new habit. After a year, you could have 12 new habits, and you’ll be a lot closer to any goals you might have wanted to reach." via http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/post/893684/4009924229
