It is an every year’s trend, but Facebook and Twitter are flooded with people talking about their new year’s resolutions. I used to make them as well, but then I just stopped.
So do they work?
Simple is answer is NO. They never do. They’re just pointless. Over the years I’ve come to the conclusion that New Year’s resolutions are for the weak. For those who are more in love with the idea than with the actual action. I tell you what I mean by that. The best example is going to gym or doing some kind of work out. I bet you know people, who keep talking about it, but they have never done anything. It is the same with let’s say starting a blog, studying more, etc. Those who just talk about it, never get there. And this is where I think these resolutions fit. They work as an excuse to not do anything and they just buy more time. So if on the 1st of December I say something like; Yeah I’ll start working out on the 1st of January, what I’m really saying is; I have another month where I don’t have to make excuses.
It is just funny to me how the gym I go to is crowded the first 2-3 months of the year, but then it slowly fades away… It always does.
New Year’s resolutions fall in the same category as “I’ll start on Monday” or “I’ll get to it on the first of next month”. They’re all just excuses, because if you really want to do something, YOU DO IT NOW. That’s how I see it.
So guys please, whatever it is you want to do, just start and don’t mind the date.
