The best thing about the Christmas/New Years break is not the 3 weeks off work, it's not the time spent with family, it's not the road trips to the coast, the enormous amount of food that I eat or the guilt free hangovers on a weekday. The best thing for me is the seemingly infinite optimism when I think about what I can achieve in the coming year. It turns out that in my seemingly infinite optimism I committed to new years resolutions. Notice the plural. Not just a couple. But 20. What was I thinking?
