New Year’s Resolutions
Posted in General
Getting one’s finances in order has topped the 2008 New Year’s resolution list of more than one third of Australians, with the perennial favourite “losing weight” finishing a distant second, according to a recent survey.
– The Sydney Morning Herald.
To see your resolutions through try these useful tips:-
- Create a plan – plan how you intend fulfilling your resolution;
- Create your plan immediately – it is imperative that you begin creating your plan immediately;
- Write down your resolution and plan – commit your resolution and plan in writing someplace;
- Think ‘year round’ not just New Years – resolutions are planned in a day and accomplished over time;
- Remain flexible – life’s curveballs will require you to change your plan not abandon your resolution!

A New Year’s Resolution is defined by Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, as a commitment that an individual makes to a project or a habit, often a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous. The name comes from the fact that these commitments normally go into effect on New Years Day and remain until the set goal has been achieved, although many resolutions go unachieved and are often broken fairly shortly after they are set.
The new year resolution is one example of the rolling forecast-method of planning. According to this method, plans are established at regular short or medium-term time intervals, when only a rough long-term plan exists.
It is asserted that the tradition of making New Year’s resolutions dates back to the Babylonians. Babylonians, from historical records, are the first one to fest New Year and also are known to have set New Year resolutions.The most common of their resolutions was said to be “to return the borrowed farm equipment”.
We wish you prosperity and blessing for 2008!
