    I would've done 'going to the gym' but I actually started this several months before and I felt it was easier than to do it as new year's resolution. I won't go for a few weeks because the gym will be packed full of people doing new year's resolutions before they stop going and give up, as does the human spirit often does.

    Personally, I'll try to be happier and move on better from my nine months' of sadness from being dumped.

    Not New Years specific, but different as in the goals weren't present at the beginning of last year.

    Be more sociable.

    Finish off the last 5kg of the 30kg I wanted to lose by year's end.

    I'd like to say something about this.

    Many new years resolutions suffer from ambiguity and lack of focus. So extremely broad goals like 'lose weight' and 'study more' tend to fail after the first month because it's so easy to say you've done something when you haven't.

    You need to make the goals more specific and ask yourself how you're going to achieve them if you want to see any progress. So instead of saying 'lose weight' or 'study more' set a goal of 'lose 5kg in x amount of weeks' or 'Improve chemistry to an A before February'. Then say how you'll do it.

    This way, you actually have a plan of attack and should you not achieve your final goal (whether it was too ambitious or unrealistic) then you would have made valuable progress towards something at least.

    Well I was thinking more along the lines of "save me 10mins in the morning" lol. (Maybe I should add punctuality to the list ) It's a confidence thing really, so I guess yes. That's very true, but knowing myself, I'm going to spend the first month living on take-aways. The thought haunts me.


    What's your new years resolution?

    They aren't really new years resolutions as such as I set myself goals throughout the year anyway, I don't bother waiting until a new year to make positive changes in my life.

    But anyway, I have 12 goals I want to work on:

    (1) stay sobre
    (2) progress with my physical training
    (3) get back into running on a consistent basis and run a full marathon race
    (4) learn new recipes and maintain a balanced diet
    (5) re-vamp my wardrobe
    (6) learn a new skill (I was thinking of learning how to play guitar)
    (7) complete more chapters for the book I'm writing
    (8) some specialist training I want to do as part of my current job
    (9) connect with others more (I tend to isolate myself socially)
    (10) be more generous and less selfish
    (11) experience life more i.e. go to more shows/concerts/travel
    (12) find a better job

    This.

    However, that said, we all need something to fantasise about every now and then, even if the goal is intangible.

    ...not to make any resolutions....I don't believe in the 'you make it happen' philosophy, what will be will be in my book. I've been trying to achieve certain goals for years and never succeed if I 'try' at it.

    This is probably a commonly repeated thread... but as the new year approaches quickly - what are your ambitions and resolutions for 2013 - also add how long you will keep them up for ?

    So what are your New Year's Resolutions?

    New years resolutions
    Due diligence that I've gained from sticking on a diet needs to be applied to:
    -Studies
    -Fitness
    -Character

    Develop some kind of a relationship with someone I respect
    DO WHATEVER the **** I WANNA DO

    Use my developing physique to break my way out of my accepted character as a nerd, which I've found hard, staying at the same school for sixth form, and reinvent myself in everyone's eyes, even in those I don't speak to.

    Keep doing crazy ass **** for experiences. Includes picking up girls on the street and taking flying lessons

    Read a book every month
