    Dec 30 2011: a persons life can not be altered by what they sat out to do one day, at the beginning of the year. but can only be changed by what they set out to do at the beginning of every day of their life. i dont believe in new years resolutions.
    • Jan 2 2012: I agree that "can only be changed by what they set out to do at the beginning of every day of their life." But new years resolutions can be the very start of something new and good. Those whom dont believe in resolutions is those who dont have the effort to fulfill what they started?

        Jan 2 2012: I agree Anderas, ... new year should be taken as opportunity for doing some new things and having certain resolutions in challenging ourselves in accomplishing our goals

      Jan 2 2012: The cynical view is that every day is just like another. How will the date make a difference? I think it's all about hope, even if the meaning we attribute to it is superficial, the hope is real and can be utilized in a powerful way. However, I share your skepticism perhaps not just to that degree. Great article, though. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/01/business/new-years-resolutions-recycled-are-a-boon-for-business.html?_r=1&scp=2&sq=Resolutions&st=cse

      Jan 3 2012: In my point of view, new year is a long, big plan and new day is a short, small one.
      Sometimes we need 1 year to finish a long, big project (open bussiness, affort a house, finish a degree..)
      But sometimes again, we just need 1 day to finish a short, small task (homework, short seminar, picnic..)

      Just for share and consider!
