If the new year hasn't started out as you had hoped, the next 11&some months are not automatically destined to go to shit. You have your own timeline and rhythm, so make resolutions when you're ready and inspired to keep them. Start new ventures when you're feeling ambitious and motivated to follow through. The more frequently you abandon promises to yourself, the further you get into the habit of quitting. So take yourself more seriously than you do a trivial schedule. There's plenty of time.
