Every year the same thing: on New Year's Eve we burn a note with a dream and drink ashes with champagne, and also – we promise, promise, promise. To someone, but more often to themselves. It’s not a fact that we will accomplish all this (judging by last year’s list, many points have remained untouched), but it’s worth writing them in order to feel responsibility to ourselves. Perhaps our lists will inspire you to create your own and begin to act in the new year according to plan.
