    Learn more codes, use softwares that are developed by non-profit organizations/companies(e.g. firefox, vlc, linux etc.).

      The non-profit resolution is a fantastic idea. More people should join you there.

    Learn "more" code for sure. Make better use of my smartphone; been lacking in that area for some time now. Also, to get away from my desktop and use the laptop and tablets more often too.

      What would you consider making better use of your smartphone? Are we talking productivity here?

      Most definitely. I mean, I do some, but usually end up going to the desktop for that. So, I suppose the "getting away form the desktop" and using my smartphone wiser go hand in hand haha.
