What more can you ask for? -If you're a LiveJournal member, make a cute little New Year's Resolution badge and post to your blog or website.

Owen's blog to see a sample. -Fiction Factor features an article by Lee Masterson titled: Setting Goals for Your Writing Career -Surf on over to Holly Lisle's website and read her article, How to Get There From Here: The Magic of Goals, then complete the goal-writing exercise. -Are you a "slacker" when it comes to goal-setting?

This looks like a great program, however, it's a little pricey for my pocketbook. -If you'd rather have a free program, try Task Coach - Your Friendly Task Manager.
