Tim Sanders quoting Jerry Yang of Yahoo and the three lists that are important each year rather than resolutions that most of us break.
1 - The Stop Doing List. What habits, tendencies or activities are counter-productive? Create a plan with a deadline, and knock these off first.
2 - The Keep Doing List. What are our greatest hits from 2010? What's working, and shouldn't be forgotten? This is important, because unless you recognize the effective, you might replace it with the novel.
3 - The Start Doing List. These are activities, habits or projects that could add value over the coming year. Consider this list the end of procrastination or the tool that will help you close the good intentions-accomplishments gap.
