Looking for a New Year's Resolution? Start a journaling habit

Starting a new habit is as traditional part of a New Year's celebration as eating black-eyed peas. This year, consider starting a journal. It's a great way to mark accomplishments and things you're grateful for (or things you would rather avoid in the future).

Use paper, a word doc, or my favorite - the 3Minute Journal app. Plan to set aside a couple of minutes at the end of each weekday (or evey day) to write down the most significant event that happened and answer a few questions about it. Within a month or so, you'll have a rich repository of data about yourself that you can use to track your inner work life.

Ask a friend to try it with you!
