Top Ten New Year’s Resolutions

2013

Every year some folks take some time to reflect on the direction of their lives which results in a number of “resolutions” to correct that direction.  Below is my Top Ten List of New Year’s Resolutions.  With diligence and concentration I should be able to make 2013 the best year yet.  Here we go:
