In Wikipedia's definition - A New Year's resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more lasting personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. This goal must be reached by the Next New Year. Keep in mind that this is a goal, not a wish and should be something that you as a person could strive for.
We all make New Year resolution each year, sometimes related to work and more often related to lifestyle.
This year too is no different. With lots of things/activities/commitments/habits around, i am sure it wouldn't be a difficult task to take your pick and get going :)
A fine book reads “People should make their New Year’s resolution something that can improve their quality of life.” some may agree and some may not. But the fact remains that to do justice to a New Year resolution, we must, in our heart, know about our commitment level to the same. One just cannot keep on sticking to a particular thing just coz he made a resolution on 1st Jan... That too... When he is not been paid for it (unless your New Year resolution is systematically planned to give your career a boost).
If you Google ' a good new year resolution ' you will get about a billion result (counting zeroes in American format), take your pick :)
Still wondering what to take up, here i would like to figure it (or them) out (there is no point telling, you won't b doing it unless you yourself have decided on it)
The resolution can be broadly based upon a macro factor affecting your life viz, lifestyle, career, relation, personal development and most important health.
The top runners in list of resolutions is always that of 'trying to quit smoking', which is indeed a good motive ( even though it doesn't bear fruit.. still it would see you less harmed ) doesn't mean that you cannot take a resolution relative to your health. There are many options, explore and get going.
A part from developing your overall outlook, Learning a new art or language will definitely boost up your sense of appreciating finer side of life and living. Get in touch with your local guitar classes :)
Taking up a new hobby or outdoor activity requires motivation as well as it automatically makes u more organized in terms of managing your time.
Even if you have a different education, u can take up a subject to do distance degree. Any subject which u loved in school days, but couldn't continue with due to different career choice and professional academic layout.
In all there are many spheres where you can focus your energy on. Just pick one and get going, don't be afraid of failure to keep up with your resolution this year too :)
As far as i am concerned, among others, one of my resolutions is to keep updating my blog more frequently :)
Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and successful new year ahead.
