Kickstarting New Year's Resolutions

I realized two things that will make it easier to achieve My goals:

1. Starting Early
2. Keep it Simple

My Chess goals will be to read three chess books carefully and to play 50+ slow games before 2012.

I could use the extra time to decide on the books to read.
