New Year Resolutions to choose from (revisited the ones of 2009)

(a.k.a 2010)

these were my new year resolutions for the last year i.e., 2009
it seems that I have achieved a very few of my objectives
anyhow, something is better than having nothing
the success colour chart with rating points mentioned against each is as follows

(green ones were done amicably) - 2
(I didn't get it right with the ones coloured in red) - 0
(some partially fulfilled objectives are portrayed in orange) - 1

Spend more and more time with parents & siblings
Enjoy life

Tame the ever increasing bulge which is on 38" right now

Get fit with few true biceps and six pack abs

Eat right in buffets

Save money

Learn something new like PRIMAVARA or MS PROJECT

Sharpen the skills of face and mind reading

Get better education order of preference is an MBA or MS in engineering
Try to get a better job by posting more resumes

Reduce stress at work
