Is Making Resolutions At The New Year A Necessary Ritual?

You don’t have to tell the whole world what you want or don’t want to do.

Valerie Burden

 

 

They’re written on my heart…not spoken out but I deliver the results.

Wipaporn Waleesajjakrn

 

 

 

 

Yes, because New Year is the chance to turn over a page and make plans for a better me.

Laya Janssens

 

 

Not necessarily! A resolution should be selfdriven where you can commit to it anytime, not just at the New Year.

Ana Katrina Abaa

 

 

 

 

Yes, it’s a good reflection of how you would have done things differently and make changes for a better future.

Andy Tan

 

 

Yes, it helps the ill disciplined to focus on immediate goals. And, if one has too many resolutions, it helps to prioritise and keep track of each or there is no achievement in the end.

Annette Pau

 

 

 

 

Yes, if you can keep your resolutions. If you can’t, then no.

Tom Rao

 

 

I only make silly resolutions … get the latest hand held Nintendo. Ha ha!

James Tan

 

 

 

 

It ties in nicely with our natural desire to start things on a clean slate and build towards a better future. Getting started on something is better than not starting at all.

Deva Vellu

 

 

The New Year often signals a ‘new start’ so it is often a psychological reset button.

Danesh Daryanani

 

 

 

 

Annual resolutions are a waste of time to me. People should aim to be decisive, healthy, well-read — or whatever they want — on a daily basis.

Benedict Thambiah

 

 

No, because I can’t keep them for a whole year!

Kaoru Zengo

 

 

 

 
 

We need to reflect daily! Why wait for a year to decide on something you should be doing NOW!
