It’s now 2014, at least according to the Gregorian calendar most countries around the world adhere to. Each new year marks an opportunity for us all to endeavor to be better people, to do things differently than we have been of late, to improve in at least one aspect of life.
While most new year’s resolutions involve losing weight, getting fit, changing jobs, or beating a vice, we here at MakeUseOf are more interested in those related to technology. Because, as we previously discovered with the predictions for 2014, technology plays an important role in the lives of all of us.
New Year, New Geek
We want to know, What Is Your Tech-Related New Year’s Resolution For 2014? Below are a few of our suggestions, but we would of course prefer you to create your own rather than just copy us. Either way, you need to simply take to the comments section of this post and tell us your tech-related new year’s resolution for 2014 using the following format.
“In 2014 I’m going to…”
- Switch operating systems.
- Keep my email inbox clean and tidy.
- Reduce my smartphone use.
- Remove any unused smartphone apps.
- Stop wasting time online.
- Learn to code.
Be creative but truthful, and, as we’re already a couple of days into 2014, these should be resolutions you’re already sticking with. We’re interested in seeing how technology plays a part in your everyday lives, both good and bad, with your resolutions hopefully revealing some intriguing insights.
Whatever your tech-related new year’s resolution is, this is your chance to tell the rest of the MakeUseOf readership. And surely resolving to do something in public increases the likelihood of you sticking to the plan. We will, after all, be keeping tabs on each and every one of you.*
Have Your Say
All comments will be read and most will be replied to, before a follow-up post is published containing the We Ask You Results. One reader will win Comment Of The Week, receiving a geeky T-shirt for their effort. We Ask You is a column dedicated to learning the opinions of MakeUseOf readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
*We will not be keeping tabs on each and every one of you. If you want to break your new year’s resolutions then that is entirely your choice. You losers.
