A couple of the blogs that I read have listed their favourite ways of keeping track of new year’s resolutions, or just resolutiuons in general. Despite the timing of my previous post on the themes for this year, I don’t really believe in NEW YEAR’S resolutions per se. Goals, or a new direction, are useful whenever you feel inspired to take them on. This year my re-direction just happened to occur around 1 January.
So here’s a couple of posts that link to some useful web applications for goal tracking, weight loss, finance, quitting cigarettes, and rewarding yourself for new habits.

In a different format to these first three they also have All Consuming which is like LibraryThing except with CDs and movies etc. and Lists of Bests, about the best n things, which just seems silly to me, but would probably suit someone. While discussing LibraryThing, apparently it now has a “tell me what I would NOT like to read” feature, which could be amusing.
