What do you think about New Year’s Resolutions?

Shirlie White:
I believe that New Year’s resolutions are good for people to have. It gives people the motivation to do what they have always wanted to do, or to benefit themselves. At the same time, New Years also seems to be used as an excuse to put off doing what people need or want to do simply because they want to say, “new year, new me.” You should be able to do what you want to benefit yourself whenever, if you want to do something do it now. Do not wait for another year just to make another resolution, take risks.

Lezille Sagrado:
I think that New Year’s resolutions can set great goals to people who are on top of things. But for me, I guess it doesn’t really matter because, even though it’s a new year, it doesn’t mean I’m going to change what I do unless I really have to. Like for example, if you want to do better in school and get good grades, don’t wait until next year to set that goal. Or even if you want to get better at a sport, don’t waste your time, take advantage of today and just do it.

Jackson Pool:
If someone needs to have the start of a new year to be motivated to do something, they’re doing it completely wrong. If you want something to change in your life, do it today, don’t wait for months and procrastinate. More than half the citizens of America make New Year’s resolutions, less than 10% go through with them. All these “resolutions” do is make the greater percentage of people more lazy and less confident. Failing your goals starts to become a habit eventually, so you have to will yourself to accomplish them. If you want something, don’t wait, do it now.

Pablo Orta:
I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s resolutions because I don’t see how going into a new year will give you the motivation you need to change something about yourself that you could’ve changed long ago. If there’s something about yourself or about your life that you want to change for the better, you shouldn’t wait around for New Year’s to finally tell yourself that you’re going to work hard to achieve your goal(s), you should take action as soon as possible. Instead of having New Year’s resolutions I think everyone should try to better themselves every single day.
