I'm like Gayle, no resolutions, but I do this time of year do a reflection on what I've accomplished and what still needs work. I make a list of about 50 goals, some big some trivial. I then prioritize them. I take the top ten (and I do include some of the trivial ones and fun ones) and work through the steps it will take to accomplish those goals. I also group them in to immediate (I've got to get my mammogram and colonoscopy), short term (the deck needs to be painted), and longer term (I'm going to go on a cruise to Alaska). I include personal growth goals, financial goals, health and fitness goals, travel goals, professional goals, yep, even scrapbook album goals. I keep this all in a notebook and start a new notebook every year. Things change and I can re-evaluate whenever the need arises and also discard some and add others. When I've accomplished one goal, I move another into the active section. it does help me stay focused, but I have to admit, that notebook and my goal can sit idle on the shelf for a long time.
