    Do you make new year resolutions and if so, do you follow them sincerely?

    I don't make any such resolutions. Whenever I find a backdrop in myself, I try to correct it.

      Quite a wise thing to do. Thanks for your response.

    I never make resolutions anymore as I have yet to follow through on any of them.  Instead I make a list of ten things I want to accomplish before the year is done. I just posted a hub yesterday about making a ten list. http://diana-lee.hubpages.com/hub/Do-Aw … a-Ten-List

      Making a list is a good idea...I read your hub, it is really interesting and I would like to try your advice. Since resolutions are difficult to follow and keep.  Thanks for your answer.

    I made a new year's resolution to stop smoking last year and I've kept up with it. It wasn't really the fact it was on new year's eve necessarily but because I made a huge deal out of it... sooooo... whenever I get the urge, I just think back on that dramatic declaration I made and I couldn't possibly back out. smile

      It is really commendable, if you can keep your promise  or resolution. Thanks for answering.

    I think resolutions set you up for failure. I prefer to write down some goals of ways to better myself and always help others do the same. I have started the pay it forward lifestyle that I find very gratifying.

      Same here...I have tried making resolutions few times, only to find them forgotten by the end of January. Thanks for your answer.

    Some years I make them and some I don't.  I already have enough goals I'm working toward this year (finishing my service year and getting a job, gaining a few specific skill sets, living independently, and beginning to pay off student loan debt more agresively) so I decided to focus on those and not set an additional resolution since my plate's already pretty full.

      Your plate is full indeed. Wish you all the best to fulfill your goals. Thanks for responding to the question.

    Yes, I do and I try to follow them, I have the whole year for it, some I follow to the successful end...and some disappear to be reinvented again, in the next year.

    I make them. I try to follow through. On financial goals and professional goals, I tend to hit them or get close. On physical goals, I still haven't lost those 20 pounds permanently.

      Loosing pounds is perhaps the most challenging resolution to keep. Even if it is achieved, chances are the weight comes back. But never loose hope and keep up the efforts. You would surely succeed, as in financial and professional goals. All the best
