So 2009 is now here, and many people are making the same new year’s resolutions they made last year.
Quit smoking. Lose weight. Find the perfect one. Be a better person.
I’m all for people trying to be (in their eyes) a better person, but I don’t think this is the time to do it. Most people don’t stick out new year’s resolutions because of the timing (hard to get motivated to exercise when it’s dark so quickly) and the fact they’re making a resolution for the sake of making one.
I think a resolution has to come when you truly want to change, not just when you think you have to change because it’s a new year.
If your heart isn’t into it, you will fail, and that may stop you from trying it again in the future when you’re sure you want to do something.
If you’re truly motivated to do something, then by all means, go ahead and do it.
Just don’t create something for the sake of having a resolution.
