Do you make them? I used to. I'm trying a new approach this year. Oh, I have things throughout the year that I try to improve, but I really try not lump them all together at one time at the beginning of the year. It can be depressing to see in print all the things I know I need to improve in my own life. (See post below regarding envy.)
It is better for me to slowly work on them one at a time. I have found that taking one new goal and focusing on it for a month or so at a time actually helps me start a new habit and hopefully give up the old one.
