What is your *musical* New Year’s Resolution?

The new year is a time for fresh starts, which often means a time for individuals to make resolutions to help them adjust some priorities. The idea of New Year's Resolutions has been under a lot of scrutiny, mainly because most of us can't even make it out of January before those goals are broken.
