New Year’s Checklist

In no particular order:

  • Greet your loved ones and friends and anyone else you hold dear. Maybe even those you disagree with
  • Ponder why people give so much significance to the transition between an arbitrarily-chosen pair of 24 hour periods
  • Take stock and reflect on the past year
  • Think about what you’d like to learn this year or how you want to improve
  • Count your blessings for the past year and be grateful
  • Change your passwords
  • Buy a new toothbrush
  • Make a New Year’s joke (“My New Year’s Resolution is 1440×900!”)
  • Set a target of how many books you’ll read in 2017
  • Choose the first book to read
  • Throw away a few things you no longer need
  • Make a list of where you will travel to in 2017
  • Check out what movies are coming out this year and which ones you want to watch
  • Audit your financials – where is your money going, how much do you owe, how much are you earning, where should you invest, etc
  • Make another New Year’s joke (“I haven’t taken a bath since last year!”)
  • Pick up your keyboard and shake out all the grime that’s gathered there over the past year
  • Make a list of projects you want to do in 2017
  • Choose something from the past year that you’re going to stop watching or doing
  • Eat your favorite food. Or ice cream. Ice cream is great.
  • Remember that there’s a new episode of Sherlock today (well January 1 in the UK)
  • Get rid of 2016 calendars
  • Make a list for the new year!
