Resolutions - A bloody waste of time

Why do people make resolutions at the beginning of the year ? Most people I know will forget about their resolutions by Chinese New Year. Why can't we make up resolutions as we journey through the year.

Why annual resolutions instead of monthly or perhaps a habit of making weekly resolutions ?

How many of us review our resolutions every month or every half a year ?

Do we make new resolutions , set new goals should we meet them earlier ?

For those of us who have made resolutions please feel free to read this

or you can look at the Top Ten New Year Resolutions

I have resolutions and usually work by them by the end of the year with exception of a few here and there.

Works well if you're goal orientated and you set big goals which you split over the year into smaller ones.

Most of my resolutions are continuations and reinforcement of previous resolutions which makes it easier. After can't disappoint when you built on yourself expectations that can't be reached in just one year. :)

i feel new year resolutions are for not so goal orientated people. somehow when such big goals are made, they are often forgotten a short while later.

thats why new year resolutions are just for show only, if a person had been goal orientated, they would already have had their long, mid and short term goals reviewed and revised regularly.

I don't think we need to wait for New Year's to have resolutions. If change is needed to improve ourselves, it can be done TODAY...why wait? Every day is a new beginning. In fact, every second is a new beginning, it doesn't have to be a new year for it to mean anything.
