New Year (Chess) Resolutions

The only resolution I make every New Year is not to make any resolutions. Although this keeps life simple for me, I can't help feeling conflicted inside.
But if you are the sort of chess player who does make resolutions here is a random collection that you may wish to borrow from

  • Master a new opening
  • Beat someone who you have not beaten in your previous games
  • Master the KBN v K checkmate
  • Introduce someone new to the game
  • Score 100% against junior players
  • Borrow a chess book from your local library
  • Play at least one tournament outside your home city/town
  • Sponsor a prize at a local event

Of course there are plenty of other resolutions that could be added to the list, so if you have some of your own, feel free to list them in the comments section.
