I do not agree with this. I love resolutions. January is as good a time as ever to make positive changes in our lives. Any time we want to better ourselves is a perfect time to do so. The one thing I do not like is calling it a resolution. I like to call them goals. A goal is something I feel has some lasting power. Not something that you will just blow off in a few weeks.
It is good to set goals with everything we do in life. At least anything we want to be successful at. So if you want to succeed at something then set your goals and set it in stone. Write it down, put that somewhere where you will see it every day and share it with someone to help keep you accountable. Go set some big goals and make this the most successful year ever!
