DON'T: Break up with someone during the New Year's countdown
Because you never know when that person will end up on a TV show and share with the world that you did that. Ouch. You don't want to be the person known as the countdown breakup guy. You might as well have just broken up with her via a Post-It note.
DO: Have a list
And if you're going to make a list, it may as well be thorough. OK, maybe one shouldn't be quite so specific as Courtney (i.e. must have a globe in their office from their mentor), but still standards are a must.
