This second resolution is more immediately painful than the last, though it probably won’t save as much money or require as much self-discipline over the course of the year.
I am canceling Netflix.
It’s fairly obvious that I would get more accomplished if I didn’t spend every evening parked in front of the television. With Netflix, I have this absurd urge to watch as many discs as humanly possible – which explains why I’ll watch two movies in one night…or an entire year of a television series.
I’m not going to give up television, but if I have less incentive to watch it, I’ll be more likely to read through one of the twenty business or photography books I have purchased over the past year.
