15 Resolutions You Should Make this Year to Get Ahead
by Denene Brox, Salary.com contributing writer

Resolution 2: Set boundaries at work

 Make this the year you stop being a doormat for your boss or needy co-workers and set some firm boundaries with your time and work load.

If you're saying yes when you mean no to staying late, taking on more projects when you already have a full plate, or helping a co-worker catch up on their work (again), it's time to set boundaries.

Resolve to: Practice saying no to seemingly small requests so you can focus on your own projects. If your boss is overworking you, begin to ask him/her for ideas on how to prioritize your load.
