It’s getting to be about that time of year, where everyone stops celebrating the holidays and starts looking more towards things that they can do to improve their lives in the upcoming year.

Many experts all say the same thing — you shouldn’t be worried about making a New Year’s Resolution, but rather make yourself a New Year’s Commitment.

The difference is that commitments are more binding, mentally and physically, over a mere resolution where you try to achieve something that may or may not happen.   It’s all about committing to your stated goal, forcing that new habit to take effect.  A resolution?  Beh.

So how many different apps have you downloaded?  A dozen?  Fifty?  And even if the vast majority of them are free… they were really more of a “freemium” download.  A freemium is where they give you a little taste of the game for free, but if you really want to enjoy it, you’re going to need to pony up some cash to unlock certain features.
