Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions

Every year, many people decide to try to better themselves in the new year. We all come up with a resolution or two (or more) to try to make things better for us as we embark on another trip around the sun. I found a list of the “Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions”…

The website Inc. recently asked 2,000 people about their New Years resolutions and came up with their Top 10 List:

  1. Diet or eat healthier
  2. Exercise more
  3. Lose weight
  4. Save more and spend less
  5. Learn a new skill or hobby
  6. Quit smoking
  7. Read more
  8. Find another job
  9. Drink less alcohol
  10. Spend more time with family and friends


So, what are your resolutions? Below is a poll of possible resolutions that you might make for 2017. Select as many as you like and we will see how the readers of the Scott Winters Blog compare to the 2,000 people that were surveyed above:

Of the 60% of us that make New Year’s resolutions, less than 1 out of 10 people will follow through. Women tend to make resolutions about health, while men make resolutions about career and drinking less.

Sadly, over half of us will fail with our resolution before the end of January.

Inc. also put together a better approach to resolutions…10 New Year’s Resolutions That Will Beat Yours. Maybe it is time to replace those same old resolutions with a new list for a more positive you. I like their new approach.

Good luck and Happy New Year!!
