Scholarly Resolution

Happy new year! Envisioning a productive 2011 is ever so much easier when a bit of pomp and circumstance is involved. Award yourself this certificate upon making a resolution. Then post it, scrapbook it, bedazzle it—whatever will keep the goal at the forefront of your mind until you complete it.

Print and complete the Scholarly Resolution form, which will help you brainstorm on a number of levels.

  • Get in touch with your reasons for adopting the goal.
  • Break it down into smaller steps, each with a target date.
  • Identify resources that will help you accomplish the goal.
  • Decide on a reward to give yourself upon completion.

I’m actually going to go fill out a few copies of the certificate myself. It and other resources for academic writers are available in the TWEED Library. Happy resolving!
