Tomorrow, reality hits — at least for those brave enough to make New Year’s resolutions.
In random fashion the Register asked readers whether they make resolutions and what they are.
Here are their responses:
I do believe in making New Year’s resolutions. Of course, how effective they are depends on the person. Still, at their most effective they can provide the incentive an individual needs to turn around his or her life. They give people hope, a sense that the future can be better than the present.
I can’t remember specific New Year’s resolutions that I’ve made, but I do know that, on several occasions, I have felt that sense of hope for the future at the beginning of the year — and that things eventually improved, due at least in part to my changed attitude or actions.
I always try to make a New Year’s resolution mostly to be better organized.
I believe it motivates me. I would like to say I do change in even a small way, however, I know like everything else we get busy with the daily life challenges and things get moved to the back of our minds.
