The gospel according to Wikipedia describes the tradition of making New Year’s resolutions as an attempt to “continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behaviour, to accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life.” Whether or not you are a committed resolution maker, it’s clearly an appropriate time to assess the past and look towards the future. But how far ahead are you looking? Six months? A year? Well, some people have a considerably longer time span on their minds!
