February 10th, 2009, 06:06 PM #1Keeping Those New Year's Resolutions?
Yesterday was the 40th day of the New Year. Some believe it to be the number that symbolizes completion. So I've been thinking a lot about the topic of New Year's resolutions, and how they've been working out for people. I wonder if anyone else has a hard time keeping their New Year's resolution(s) or if it's just me.
Some say that the key to being successful with your New Year's resolutions is to make none. Then you break none. Others say that the key to success is in making real and achievable resolutions on that first day of the year...
Are your resolutions turning into a success? Feel free to either only vote (voting is anonymous), or both vote, and comment in the thread.
I personally have been having a harder time keeping my personal ones (like swimming more regularly, and spending more time with my family), but professional ones (like doing better with day-to-day bookkeeping, blogging every day, etc) have been turning out pretty good.
How about you?

But anyway, since you want to know if I was able to keep one of my New Year's resolutions that are related to this business, the answer is a BIG, NO!
Not because of any of my fault , but because of the new P. TB. issues that just happen to surface in places were I was not expecting it to happen...
But, as long as I still have the time..........................

The one resolution I finally kept was to quit smoking. I had quit for 16 years, went back for about 5. The short answer why I went back: stupidity, of course! But only a severe case of sinusitis + middle ear infection + perforated ear drum got me to finally quit...and I've been off for about a month now.
My business resolutions have been upended a bit, what with the SAS, OneCause, etc. issues. After rebuilding my site with PopShops, am now downsizing/streamlining and thinking about other ways to generate income (own products, drop shipping, very tightly focused niches, etc.).Renée

Yes...I am exercising. (I enjoy that.)
Yes...I am dieting. (I do not enjoy that.)
Sorta...I am working on not talking trash to myself. What I mean by that is not thinking things like, "You dumbass," when I make a mistake or say something I wish I hadn't. I'm finding it difficult to change this very negative and harmful behavior, but I'm working on it!

I only made one, and it is sort of a general "be more gentle with yourself" type of thing, so I think I'm doing pretty well.

Over 50% made no New Year's resolutions? Interesting poll results...

Saying, well, after New Year's I'll do x is just procrastinating.
(and I meant to post this two days ago when I voted.)

I have been blogging more but I am still having a hard time with too much time spent watching tv. We will see, fingers crossed. Thanks for the reminder!
