The new year is coming soon, and traditionalists will start thinking in terms of resolutions.

But why resolve to give up your favorite guilty pleasures, when you know you'll probably reverse yourself by February?

No, it's better to think in more positive terms, and set some goals you want to accomplish during 2014.

It might be something big, like starting the small business you've always dreamed of owning, or something less ambitious, like finally meeting that new neighbor that moved onto your street months ago.

For possible inclusion in a feature story on resolutions, email your goals to Dan Taylor <a href="">here</a>, call him at 707-521-5243 or snail mail them to 427 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa, 95401.

Please include your full name and the town you live in.
