As a matter of fact, someone asked me JUST YESTERDAY what resolutions I had for the New Year 2018.  My reply was not what they expected.  I told them I didn’t have any and that if I resolve to do something, that it is for the long haul and that there is no ‘resolution’ for that. Read the post for some AWESOME Resolution Ideas from various sources.
