• Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III: “To perfect his feet-first slide.” RG3 has tamed his instincts a bit since the concussion against Atlanta and the knee injury against Baltimore. But he still needs to fine-tune his decision-making on when to go down and how. Quarterbacks who don’t slide properly can resemble one-car accidents.

• Houston Rockets rookie Royce White: “To balance life and work.” An anxiety disorder is derailing the first-rounder’s career before it begins. He has been inactive for most of the season and recently rejected a D-League assignment. White wants to ensure his profession doesn’t conflict with his health.

That’s a worthy goal for all of us in 2013.
