To Resolve or Not to Resolve

I need your help!

I'm doing some research on New Year's resolutions.

Do you make them?  Why?

If you make them, do you keep them?

What is the New Year's resolution that you regret making?

What is the New Year's resolution that you regret you did not keep?

Do you not make New Year's resolutions?  Why not?

Please leave a comment below or email me  at CarolWeeksSpeaks@charter.net.

I'll be doing a future post on this subject.  Thanks so much!

  2. I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I suppose it's because I don't see any point in it. Instead, I make daily resolutions. I'll make my list and stick to it. Works for me!

    1. That's a great idea, Kathleen. It's not so overwhelming when you take it day by day... Thanks!

  3. I do make resolutions. To me they express my desire to be better than I was last year. I've learned to make them realistic and, most important, not to expect too much too fast. I stumble a lot but I keep going. I remind myself that they are resolutions for the whole year not for the first week or month.

    1. Sounds like you've got this all figured out! I think that's wonderful and certainly an inspiration to the rest of us. Thanks!

  4. I do make resolutions but don't necessarily start them in January. I'll start them at any time of year. One thing that helps me--doing a trial run. If I'm going to plan to do something like cut back on my spending or work out 3 times a week, I'll practice a couple of weeks before my "start date" to figure out how to make it work. That way, when my "official" start date arrives, I have a much better chance of succeeding. ;)
