I made one years ago to never make a new years' resolution again. I've stuck with it.

I give myself about 80% on the follow through, so I answered always on the poll. The resolutions are very important to me, but they rely on a lot of things that I don't entirely have control over.

I have some I automatically am able to fulfill - like, learning a new thing and such. So I reuse them every year. ;)

I didn't make any resolutions this year because my goals are the same from last year. But I'm glad that I actually accomplished two of them! This year, I'll work harder to complete more of my goals!

Haha, now that I think about it, all my resolutions tend to be art-related. If I make anything social-related, I know I'd never follow through! ; v ;

I sometimes make resolutions and sometimes keep them. The ones that I don't make particularily for New Years I'm much more likely to keep, though.

I don't bother with New Years resolutions because I believe the best way to progress is to be constantly looking for things you could make better. In other words, I make new resolutions practically every day.

Yes and I always follow through with at least one of them. My main one this year is to finish my movie. And my other one is to lose weight, which I still haven't lost as much as I'd like to, but I'm really close :) I'm not obese and some people would tell me I don't need to lose anything, but I just want to lose about 10 pounds nothing too big :D

Every year I've made a resolution, and ever year I've broken it.
This year I resolve only to become proficient at something that will make me more valuable to the world we live in.
Something like... oh, I don't know... playing horse-shoes, maybe.

Yup.. mostly follow through.. but something s can't change cause other people don't want to change themselves and thus, hinders the reasoning on about more then half of my resolutions.. *shrugs* mostly non-art res's though.

I'm more like...I make a resolution, and I may or may not follow through. But my resolutions tend to be more generic, and so I might follow it through one day, and completely not the next. ^^'

Yeah, but I don't think that you should wait for a new year just to make a change in your life. If you want to change something, change it right away.

I've never really done a new year's resolution before, at least not seriously. This year though I have a few. Because they're honestly things I want to change about myself and change things in my life. New years is simply giving me a more definite starting point and way to phrase and plan some things.

And I'll follow through on this one, usually I don't even make one, and if I did I'd probably fail, but.

Yes but I never follow through. Not because I don't try. I just haven't seemed to figure out a method to make it work. My resolution for the past 2 years has been to stay in budget and I've yet to do that. I think I've managed to fine tune it now though so here's to 2013 being a successful year!

YOU DON'T NEED TO READ THIS

I see no point. If I really want to change something, improve something, or whatever else why must it be important to have with the coming of the new year? No! It I want to change or improve something about myself or something of the like than the start of a year shouldn't be the reason why. Its just as bad as someone giving texting, starbucks, sweets, or some little thing that isn't of a huge importance to give the weeks before Easter for Cathloics (and I'm too lazy to fix that word).........
............................................okay sweets is reasonable for someone who is dependent and really needs to giving them up to improve health......

And thats why I don't do new year's resolution.


Yes.....yes I did just have a rant

I frequently say things like "I'm gonna do this and I'm not going to do that", but I keep doing/not doing them anyway. The only resolution I have for this year that I will have no choice but to do is to improve my Japanese by even a little over the course of my time out here in Japan so I can at least carry on a conversation of sorts.

I haven't made a resolution the past few years...I think this year I'm going to try to eat healthier. Usually too tired to cook after classes and studying, but I don't want to start gaining a crapload of weight either.

I'm going to try a thing I heard, where every day you write down something positive that happened on a scrap of paper and put it in a jar. Then at the end of the year you read all the scraps.

I just pretend I'm going to work harder at everything the next year and be a better person all around. The only thing I get better at is knowing the last second to which I can procrastinate before I should start my essay due the next day.

There's so much pressure and expectation on New Year resolution. Also, trying to find the balance between too specific and too vague

Blah, blah, blah - treat myself better. Sounds good
