Will You Be Keeping Your New Year’s Resolution?

Written by Samantha Pointer

Happy New Years!If you have been reading my blog for any time now you should know how I feel about resolutions. I hate them! Why you ask? Because we never keep them. I prefer to set attainable goals instead. But a lot of people still make New Year’s resolutions, so I thought I would share with you a great survey infographic done by Franklin Covey to find out if people have the same resolutions from year to year or do they change.

 

It’s a new year. What decisions are you planning to make this year to get you closer to your goals? This is the time to get organized and start fresh and keep it going. Make decisions this year, not just resolutions.

  • There is some really interesting data in that infographic –
    particularly the fact that education and career appeared on the top
    10 resolutions this year when they weren’t there before. I wonder
    if that’s a sign of changes in the economy and labor market, that
    people have to start exploring other options?

    • I believe so. It seems that everyone is having to learn new skills or polish existing skills to get better jobs, or to get a job period. Also it helps if you want to go into your own business to advance the experience you already have in a field with more education.
