Thom Quinn, over at The Q-Log, suggests we go for "Results, Not Resolutions."
Instead of thinking of a single resolution, set some real goals. Most resolutions are wishy-washy at best and an empty promises at worse. Instead, focus on goal-directed behavior which ends with powerful results!
Please consider using the S.M.A.R.T.E.R. Goal System I outlined this summer. This is more work and will take you a few hours to plan your year; however, would you go on vacation without some preparation?
If not, why would not take the time to insure you have the best year ever?
