I just read a blog post by SamCopeland listing possible ideas for new year's chess resolutions. I have not been playing for very long, and not very intensely, but I decided to make a couple goals for myself in 2015. They are:
1) Achieve rating of 1700 on Chess.com
2) Memorize 15 openings (just the actual moves and maybe common defenses against them)
3) Compete in my first tournament
This is more for my records, but I encourage you to make some goals for your 2015 chess year, too!
