2011.......Don't Make New Years Resolutions

The first day of a new year is a great day to look back at the previous year and look forward to the next. It is a day when many people examine themselves and consider what they should change going forward. New Year's resolutions may include exercising more (losing weight), spend more time with family, start a business, write more blog posts, go out more, etc.

New Year's resolutions are not effective ways to make or break habits. One of the hardest ways to break a habit (like smoking) is cold turkey. It is just as difficult to jump into a new habit and make it stick.

The best way to try to improve yourself, start good habits, or break bad habits is to regularly (not annually) evaluate yourself and take action immediately. Don't wait until New Year's to change.
