New Year, New You?

I've been hesitant to address the issue of New Year's Resolutions. There are optimists who make them every year. There are cynics who say there's no point in making resolutions that will ultimately fail within weeks. Still, there others who say, "Why limit resolutions to one day out of the year? Everyday is a day to make a resolution to change." I understand the merit in all these perspectives, but one thing they have in common is the idea that we must always strive to improve ourselves because we've internalized the belief that we must constantly prove our worth and value as individuals. For that reason, here is my book recommendation to start the new year:
