There’s Still Time to Make a New Year’s Resolution

How are you doing with your New Year’s Res­o­lu­tion?  Are you among the 40 to 45% of Amer­i­cans to make a res­o­lu­tion this year? If you are, accord­ing to Proactivechange.com, you are 10 times more likely to actu­ally reach your goal, than those who do not make a New Year’s res­o­lu­tion. Only about 46% of those who make a res­o­lu­tion actu­ally keep it, but com­pared to the 4% who try to enact change with­out com­mit­ting to a New Year’s res­o­lu­tion, the num­ber looks pretty good.

So, how about it? It’s not too late to resolve to some kind of improve­ment this year. Don’t know what you want to change? About.com claims that the top 10 res­o­lu­tions are:

 

1. Spend More Time with Fam­ily & Friends
2. Fit in Fit­ness
3. Tame the Bulge/lose weight
4. Quit Smok­ing
5. Enjoy Life More
6. Quit Drink­ing
7. Get Out of Debt
8. Learn Some­thing New
9. Help Oth­ers
10. Get Organized

What­ever you decide to change, keep in mind that your goal should be real­is­tic and eas­ily mea­sured. Don’t let the big list above scare you off, Use About.com’s advice:  just pick one behav­ior to change (for now).  So, how about it? What is your New Year’s resolution?
