First month of the year is over. So, what's happened to those New Year's resolutions? I'll bet 90% of them have been forgotten already. Am I wrong? Laughing

Not very! I have already backslid a little bit, but I am trying to focus more on what I'm doing right than what I'm getting wrong.

That's the way to go, Pique. A lot of people beat themselves up too much and end up demoralizing themselves. I think we overestimate what we can do in one year, and grossly underestimate what we can do in a decade. We should rather set 'Decade' goals than yearly goals, don't you think?

Hi, I stopped making them a few years back. It seemed to me that most were related to being a better person or somehow improving yourself, perhaps physically. Since I strive to do that all the time resolutions were redundant. I am certainly not perfect, but making an annual pronouncement to do better was not necessary. Rolling Eyes

Good Listening

Same as Bruce, I stopped making those resolutions long ago and I have had better success at meeting both short term and long term goals.

I really like making resolutions, even if I don't fulfill them. I usually aim more for "life goals" rather than things that I can change right away. I don't quit habits or start new activities, but just try to tell myself things like "be kinder and more appreciative" or "find a new skill to learn." I don't stress out about them. It's really more about looking at my life and where I believe there's room for improvement, you know? Apparently, I have a lot of room for improvement since I have a list of 50+ goals.
