My solution to the New Year’s Resolution problem

It’s a strange tradition, when you think about it: when the New Year begins, we make little promises to ourselves about how we are going to change ourselves for the better — give up smoking, take up regular exercise, learn not to despise people who decide to learn Esperanto — but of course most such attempts are doomed to failure. Those that do succeed are rare enough that many actually make news headlines.

So YouTube announced a little contest to help out a little. The idea is that you watch an inspirational video about how to stick to your resolutions, then make and upload a video telling the world what your resolutions are so you can’t go back on your word.

Well, there’s only one answer to that.
