Well, the New Year has begun! The other morning I heard someone say on the radio that New Year’s resolutions had a much more lasting effect when people decide to actually do something (i.e. taking action) than to try to stop doing something (quitting smoking for example). So I’d thought I’d follow in his footsteps .If you want to take action and change things for the better in the new year, here are some book tips that might help you reach your goal!

1. On becoming a better human being: 101 Resolutions for the New Year

2. On trying to live in mindful moments or meditate: Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind

3. On Making peace: Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time

4. On travelling the world (Yes, MOVE that lazy ass, you armchair traveller, you!): 5. On finally getting to read those thick tomes waiting on the “can’t wait to read” shelf (smirk!): The New York Times 10 Best Books Of 2007
