With this quote in mind, I invite you to make a list of 10 things you would love to do, and pick just one to commit to this year, then repeat the exercise for your main characters.
In When Harry Met Sally, Harry tells Sally that when you know who you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want to get started right away.
The top of my own list is to finish my various writing projects I am working on, followed by improving my tango and then, going to bed earlier.

By considering what you and your character want/need to do right away, you’ll be able to find out what’s really important.
Happy New Year!
