    I don’t normally do resolutions because it seems like it doesn’t end well for most people.. (plus my last one was no more hospital visits and that one ended with me and my Fiance spending about half the year in and out of the hospital for our various surgeries:-)  your idea sounds like a good one though. πŸ™‚  what sort of things are yougiving up or starting to do?

    I don’t really believe in making New Years resolutions.  If you really want to change something about your life, a certain date on the calander shouldn’t be the impetus to do it.  Just make the choice and get it done – no matter what part of the year it is!

    @Mrs.KMM: I basically hold the same opinion. I started going to the gym in October because I wanted to get physically active. I just made the choice and here I am. I didn’t need to wait until the first of Jan. to do that.

    I don’t do New Year’s resolutions but I do set goals around my birthday which is this month. I like to look back and think about what I did the year before, if I accomplished what I wanted to do, what I can improve on, what new things I want to do or try etc. This also works really well for me because I run my own business so I spend December prepping for the new year and I make sure in January that my goals are clear for the rest of the year!

    I try to have career oriented resolutions.  For example, my goal this year is to double the readership of my blog.

    I don’t do them. Its not that I don’t believe in them. I just don’t.

    I do set goals for myself, not on New years.. Just whenever I want to!

    I think it is setting too much pressure on one point- I think of everyday as “New years” where you do the best you can.

    the idea of new years resolutions is annoying to me. my boss asked us all go around the table to say ours at a meeting this week, and I had to make up a fake one so I’d have something to say.

    I feel like right now in our lives we have too much going on to make another commitment. I just want to work harder to develop DH’s business so we can start hiring more people, it’s a goal but not because of new years.
