    Nice article!

    I love how you structured this list, its very easy to find examples in various categories.

    I have made resolutions in the past but I couldn’t seem to keep them. Eventually I would forgetbthat I had made them in the first place

    Any advice on how to keep motivation going?

    1. Alexander Blue (Post author)

      Hi Ian, thanks for coming again. For starter, I always bring my piece of paper about my new year resolutoins in my wallet. It is somehow give you some motivation, because you ‘carry’ it everywhere.

      Another way to stay motivated is to make a goal tracking. If you find this too hard to maintain, try reading some news, article, or even just positive quotes as often as you can. It helps to boost your motivation (especially if you always come to this website :) )

      Good luck with your new year resolution.

    Hey really good resolutions! Actually i’m facing with kind of a little depression because of my life situation. My job is fine and prestigious kinda, but i’m not happy with the whole career path. I’m just a kid, i’m 22 and i want to become an animator. Currently i’m an engineer. Can you advise me anything? Because i loved your resolutions about carrer

    1. Alexander Blue (Post author)

      Hi Tyler. I kinda know that feeling. My previous job is also a prestigious one, but I’m not happy with it :) Glad to hear that you already know about what you want to be. You can see my reply to John below if you want to live with your passion. I wish you good luck with your new year resolutions :)

  3. Bob Brooks

    Great post with so many ideas, I never really wrote a resolution. I have written goals but your post opens my eyes to more ideas. Not just work or income goals, but increasing my awareness with family and friends. I am going to write a resolution and include many of the areas you posted. Great to help with self improvement.
    Great site that I will re-visit again and again. Thanks

    1. Alexander Blue (Post author)

      Hi Bob glad to hear it. New Year resolutions are indeed helpful with self improvement. I began to write it last year and it kept me motivated this whole year. Thanks and looking forward to your next visit :)

  4. John Rico

    Hi there! This new year I prefer your business resolution. I really wanted to start my own online business but I don’t know where to start. I already tried several programs before but nothing seems to work. Actually i want to have my own business because I really hate my job and I want to be my own boss. S do you have any recommendations that i could start on?

    1. Alblue (Post author)

      Hi John, that’s a good start :) I know that feeling and it already jotted into my new year resolution. You can try with owning a small side business that take less time to maintain, so you can still have a work-life balance.

      Alternatively, if you want a serious business right from the start with your passion or hobby as the foundation, you can read an article about how to do it by clicking here. Thanks for visiting and good luck with your new year resolutions :)
