  1. I love reading posts about new year resolutions. It’s great to read about different perspectives and it also helps me to reflect on my own year.

  2. Really well-written; great detail! I am impressed by your dedication to self-betterment. I just did a post recently on 40 things that I want to do before I’m 40 (now 35), so I totally understand the idea of reflecting at the end of the year. I do the same around birthdays! Good luck!

    1. Thanks, Krista! I’m also 35 – maybe it’s a magic number. 🙂 And I love the idea of doing this around birthdays too. I’ll need to put that in my planner so I don’t forget.

  3. This is a cool New Years resolution post! Never have heard of Jim Rohn, but I love all of his work that I’ve read so far. So encouraging, I usually don’t write a resolution, just tell it. Now I want to write a New Years resolution. All the information you have shared makes so much sense so it will be a lot easier to write one. 

    So here goes:  My Health is Restored, I’m caring for and loving myself again.

    Thank you! 

  4. Hi Jade. I found this article very useful and important because it came at the right time. The end of 2019 has 🐝 am amazing one for means I am excited how my 2020 would look like. So I have a major goal for 2020 which is to set up a business (an online business) and I am so excited about it. I know it wouldn’t be easy moving forward but I am ready. I have made some plans on how to get money for it. As a matter of fact, I have gotten more than half of it and I am almost getting to the peak of what I needed to get the tool to get started.

    Thanks for your tips with which I can do better.

  5. Great discussion on New Year’s resolution. With 2020 drawing near, I have a lot to reflect on what I did for my life goals, especially in the area of growing my online business. I was hoping it would take flight this year, but it didn’t so clearly I need to revisit what was lacking in my strategies. What got me here yesterday isn’t what’s going to get me there tomorrow. Something has to change and a lot of reflection will be needed for that. 

    1. Cathy, you hit the nail on the head there. I think the greatest value of reflection is that it gives you knowledge and power. I hope you find the answer you’re looking for. 🙂

  6. I try not to make new year’s resolutions because it would somewhat bother me if I do not keep them, but I do need to take more time to reflect and maybe that would help focus a lot more and break down the resolutions so it is not such a daunting feat to keep.

    1. Thanks for commenting, Serena. You’re right, it can be quite intimidating – especially the thought that we’ll have to do something major for the rest of your life. I find that it helps when I think of Jim Rohn’s description of success: “a few simple disciplines practised every day.” A lot easier to take in. 😉

  7. Interesting article on New Years Resolutions,.  New Years is almost here, so many will be doing that, making New Years Resolutions.  I do not do that though, I believe Today is the First day of the Rest of my life.  I do that 

    I did not know that New years Resolutions were four thousand years old, somehow I thought it was an American thing, I was wrong..

    I Love your thoughts on Reflection.   I do that a lot.  I do it a lot in prayer, and meditation.  I Love Self Improvement.

    1. Thanks for sharing, Phil. You’re right. It’s possible to change at any moment we wish and change our lives. That said, the end and beginning of the year are quite poignant for many people and have powerful symbolic power. As the title goes, though, you do you boo. Good luck and enjoy the process. 🙂

  8. This is a really helpful post which will surely help people to make New Years resolutions that they can keep to. I always take time to reflect when it comes to the end of the year.

    1. That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing your experience. I personally have not take the time to reflect as often as I need to. Sometimes, life gets in the way and I forget but I am definitely getting better and more consistent about it. When I do, the results are phenomenal so I always recommend reflection. 🙂

  9. I try to set goals instead of resolutions now days so I don’t get down on myself if I fail. I’m human and I fail a lot. Small goals are more reachable to me.

    1. Hi Ashley, working with your own strengths and weaknesses always yields the best results. I personally don’t distinguish between the two and that mindset helps me. For some people, going for a higher dream makes it more exciting whilst for others, focusing on the simple ways to achieve these dreams work better. There are no right or wrong answers here as all of us are moving on individual paths.

      Thank you for sharing your experiences and we hope you enjoy the process! 🙂

  10. I started to think about my new year goals. So important to write them down and each month see how you are doing with them

    1. I can understand what you mean. I’m a recovering perfectionist so if I don’t get something precisely when and how I want it, I really feel like a failure. It’s something I’m constantly working on as I do need goals to perform well at all. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.


  11. This was such a lovely and informative post Jade! I am in the process of making my New Year’s resolutions and this is really helping me to formulate my list. It was also interesting to learn where New Years Resolutions originated from.

  12. I love New Years Resolutions, but realistically I do not keep going with them for the whole year. This year I am determined to do so. It is so important to make sure your goals are SMART. If they are not measurable it will be hard to track your progress.

  13. Doing a simple, basic review of your year makes all the difference Kevin and Jade. I am all about the moment but do review months and years, spotting patterns, getting clearer going forward. Excellent points.


  14. This is an amazing post. I don’t think you could have been any more detailed about Resolutions than this. Maybe this year, I’ll finally keep mine!
