Does announcing your resolutions help or harm them from being done? Should we really make one or just work on self progression?
Everyone is different. For me, if I'm serious, I'll announce my resolution. This is its to lose weight. I do that because it puts more pressure on me to keep my resolution.
But, that's just me.
I'd also announce it, and for the same reason. If others know, then they also know if I'm not doing it, so I'll make a better effort. Plus, it helps 'psych' the mind into sticking to it.
My resolution is changing format this year. I'm setting up small, interval goals that will add up to something bigger. If I set up something huge (lose 50 pounds, stop smoking, etc.) and I don't achieve it, it discourages me too much. So I'm starting with losing 10 pounds by the end of February, etc.
That's a great idea, mind if I steal it? lol. I need to lose 40 lbs and would like to by the end of the year, so setting smaller goats might be optimum.
I didn't write the first reply. I have a hacker . I'm sorry.
That's alright, you're hacker (ie spouse, kids) had a good idea. Tell them I said so!
I'm sorry new heart pills make me dorky, I know how it happened. Anyways we figured it out.
That sounds like a good plan. Easy to achieve. Much success to you.
I, paradigmsearch, hereby resolve to stay out of the religion forums come 2012.
You lie, because where would you get your daily dose of drama from?
I don't think there would be any problem in announcing one new year's resolution.
I always announce and write down whatever resolutions I make. It makes me try harder to achieve my Goals as I don't want to look like a fool in front of anyone who knows about them. I have always set reasonable goals and achievable goals so far and never had a problem keeping it. And I am sure that will be able to keep my resolutions for the coming year too...
I think its fine to announce a new years resolution, just not the wish on a shooting star or when you blow out birthday candles.
Thanks for the feedback for whatever reason I did not get the notifications on my phone through the app or I would have replied sooner. I plan to make small progressions and call it that instead of calling them resoloutions.

Have you fulfilled your new years resolutions, do you remember what they were?We make em, but we don't often follow through with em. Care to share your thoughts on why we don't / or do, if you've fulfilled yours. Mine was to stop smoking, it still is.

Mine are quite typical, eat more healthy, play more football and get a promotion.

Given that very few New Years resolutions are kept, is it important to continue to make resolutions?and why?

I don't usually make any resolutions, but this year I decided that I am going to resist click bait. You know those annoying things on the side of your screen that say things like, "People who died and nobody noticed," or "You won't believe what these stars look like now."...
