I’ve been reading New Year’s resolutions for the last 2 days and here are my observations:
Most common New Year Resolutions and interesting commonalities among resolvers:
1. Blogging more/every day/consistently etc.
Almost every blogger have that in their lists.
Interesting that most of the resolvers did not decide how much to lose. Therefore it is a wish, not a goal.
3. Drinking more water
This is a habit to be developed. Try doing it for 1 month and there: You have a new habit. It is neither challenging nor fun. Therefore I don’t think this will work for anyone as a resolution because developing this as a habit will not make a person feel successful.
A goal should be challenging and fun that you stick to it. Read more about goals vs wishes
4. Eating healthy
Most of the resolvers admit that they ate lots of junk and got drunk on New Year’s Eve.
5. Finishing school/graduation etc.
The bloggers in this group are very specific about their goals in miles/day or miliseconds.
7. Finishing “Once started” projects, mostly being postponed to 2015 from 2014 or earlier.
Sometimes giving up is a good decision. I’ve even made that a goal/project 🙂
I recommend giving up rather than feeling failed all the time. Read more about giving up as a goal itself.
I realized that most of the bloggers who wrote this as a resolution are also happen to be book buying addicts like me, which lead them another resolution “Buy less books, first read what you already bought” I loved this. Since I have the same addiction, this is how I stopped it: Blogging more. So this leads to the most common resolution 🙂
Please don’t get me wrong. I just wanted to add some humor 🙂
I really love reading blogs, please keep writing…
