With the new year coming up there is always one thing on people’s minds: new years resolutions. People see the new year as a fresh start. On January 1st everyone comes up with goals for the new year and things they want to accomplish, which they may or may not follow through on. But, making a new’s year resolution is a good thing, and here is. One of the most common reasons we break our New Year’s resolutions is that we get a little overzealous when we make them and we over-commit.

And as a result, 40 percent of us blame our busy schedules for our lack of follow-through [source: FranklinCovey].It’s easier to keep just one resolution rather than several. The most popular resolutions year after year are having finances in order, getting healthier, making a marriage better, breaking bad habits and being closer to God. Many of those resolutions have a focus on the individual — and some say this is another thing wrong with making resolutions: It is wrong to make resolutions that are focused on yourself and not on others. Don’t let the idea of new year’s resolutions scare you. There is a lot of good that can come from a new year’s resolution.

And if you fail, it is okay. Continue your resolution into 2020. If you think your main goal will take more than one year but there are steps you can take to break down that goal during this coming year, accomplish. It’s well known that New Year’s resolutions don’t have a high success rate. While many people opt to ditch the annual goal-setting event, about 40 to 45 percent of American adults set at.

Many gyms offer memberships at a discounted rate for the start of a new year. Having a New Year’s resolution, as opposed to starting at any point in the year, could save you a few dollars along the way. Cons: 1. New Year’s resolutions feed into procrastination. For someone who procrastinates, the concept of New Year’s resolutions is terrible. In reality, “changes happen in small steps over time,” Weinstein explains.

For many of us, making New Year’s resolutions backfires in ways we don’t even realise, says Joseph Luciani, a. And as I’ve thought back on those years and those resolutions, I am convinced there are significant reasons why New Year’s Resolutions don’t work. 1. We bite off more than we can chew. Many of us feel that we have many changes that need to be made in our lives. We need to lose weight.

We need to save money. We need to pay off debt. We.

New Year’s resolutions are always a good idea. A fresh start and a clean canvas provide an opportunity for change. When you commit to change, whether verbalized or not, you are taking the first step to whatever it is you want to accomplish. Change can be a rocky road with many bumps along the way. The surest way to fail at a New Year’s resolution is to make one.

A survey by US News on the topic says that 80 percent of your resolutions are bound to fail by February. With the New Year around the corner, some of us may be looking to ring out some old habits while ringing in the new.

  • My New Year’s resolution was not to watch anime for whole day which is really hard for me because I watch anime all the time everyday cuz I love anime

  • I don’t comment often but I have to say that, I really really really like your videos. Never stop doing them�� you’re such a sweet person

  • me while clicking the video

    “I’m not on a diet…”

    me saying proudly

    “I have to be on a diet if I make and eat all these”

    But the fact is I am too lazy to make all these��

  • -Me: watches the video in 11:57 before the new year
    -The video ends at 12:01


  • Came to your channel through Michelle’s video! And oh my goodness I have spent the last 2 hours watching all your videos! They are all AMAZING! You have incredible advice, I have been jotting down so many notes haha. Can’t wait for more to come! And these ideas were fantastic, definitely going to be applying some in 2017. Thanks for sharing:)

  • Tasty posting a video telling people not to click on it if they’re on a diet everyone who’s on a diet suddenly clicks on the video LOL.

    Anyone here because they’re board in corona (nope just me ok)

  • When she says that it’s been scientifically proven that being in nature makes you happier, then why does my sister beg to go home and keeps annoying the crap out of us about not wanting to be in nature!? Can anyone relate? ��

  • Nobody will see this, but it’s psychologically proven that you’re more likely to achieve your goals when you don’t tell anyone what they are.

  • You always inspired me to do a good thing. also, u’re the one who make me out from sadness zone. Thank You so much babe��. i feel liked getting a new battery after watched ur video��. luv u❤..

  • Okay for “Do that thing that you have always wanted to do” So I’ve been wanting to start a Youtube Channel but I have an android and I cannot record on that. So how would I start a Youtube Channel with an Android, I’m a professional iMovie editor so I have the editing down. I have a school laptop to edit on what would you recommend? I’ve done the math it will take until the end of summer break to get an iPhone with decent quality.!HELP!

  • Ms socratica what’s your main field and where are u from?
    I want to studying from out of country on the basis of scholarships would u tell me? How I can
    My field is mathematics
    Bachelors degree in final year

  • Awesome! loved this collab as I got to discover this channel and now have been watching all of your videos. Thank you both of so many wonderful and inspiring ideas. I look forward to trying to make some of them happen in the new year:D

  • sadie: “getting to pet a cat or a dog on the street is literally one of the best things ever”
    me: okayy im gonna steal someone’s dog

  • Every time I see a video I pronounced the channel name as “Sorcatica”, I dono why but I would like to change this in upcoming year and planned for some IT certifications, any suggestions for this?

  • Hi! i just found your channel and it shocks me how your maturity is so inspiring (I’m 19). You got yourself a new subbie friend! Keep up the amazing content girl!!

  • If you really need to achieve something, don’t make a New Year’s resolution, make a plan. Studies have shown over and over again that motivation and try-hard attitude mean nothing without a plan. When you have a plan, now plan for when it fails. This is how you succeed.

    New Year’s resolution about something you don’t need to achieve, like improve cooking, is ok. But even then you’re more likely to stick with it when you have a plan.

  • I just clicked on this channel, and I already love it. She’s real and raw and doesn’t try to be cool. She also tells the truth. Love it x

  • I discovered podcasts in 2018! I’ve also learned about how important it is to maintain boundaries. Having one day to yourself (besides school and work) is necessary! Eating 3 meals a day is a must! Always reach out for help; everyday if you can. Finally, I have learned that I don’t have to validate myself to the world constantly.

  • 2020: u know what im going to make this the worst year of them all so you can’t defeat project zorgo
    Edit: everyone else: CURSE YOUUUUUU

  • this is probably one of the best videos i’ve ever seen! i wanted 2020 to be the “best year of my life” but it didn’t start that good so my motivation was gone. But then i saw this video and i’m so motivated again! thanks a lot from belgium����

  • The struggle is real
    Me watches this because I know I will not burst gets to marshmallow cake pops
    Also me mom can we go to the store for “ diet essentials “
    Mom sure
    Me gets very unhealthy thing in the store
    Mom weren’t you on a diet
    Me yah about that….

  • Girl I discovered you a few days ago and I’m so happy i did. You’re like my soul inspiration. I haven’t been able to find anyone on youtube like you. Cant stop watching your videos now and feeling good about myself!

  • Tips for resolutions

    1.The plans must have time sense,don’t challenge yourself with a 60 books when your time and your energy only suffice for 12 or 15.

    2-The plans must be executed but must be also manageable and flexible,for example you can increase the number of books to be read this year or decrease it depending on new circumstances you are facing,this will make the plan still executable but not all dumped or achieving very much less than you could.

    3-Make these resolutions more context specific to your career and/or interests,pick a language if you want but it would be better if it might be the language of a country you might head to,or continuo your studies in,pick books that’s in your field of study or from supporting field,or a field with a possibility of syntheses with yours.

    4-Break the bigger plan into smaller plans,not just days,days must be a way of tracking these plans.

  • 2020 we need to all factor in dedication and committed to commitment the hallmarks to a better and effective New Year Resolutions plus random acts of kindness https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aggod7RAFgw&feature=channel_page​

  • i doing this thing were i pick an item at the start of month. then during the month i have to save up so at the end of the month i get it.

  • hello socratica,please tell me and please reply, please tell me what should be my resolution to top the class in this new year 2020 for a student please reply, please please please please

  • Mine is to be positive on the inside and out, basically by positive inside is just the usual and on the outside is to look like I take car of myself, so look after my body, my skin, my hair etc��

  • Start planning a dream trip at the beginning of the year ✔️��

    I actually started planning on New Year’s Eve. And even if it doesn’t happen, literally just planning it makes me so happy and excited��

  • I saw your videos that were 4 or 5 years old I notice one thing…..your beauty and style is still increasing instead of aging…

  • Thanks for mentioning the importance of choosing a vegan life style. You are really eyes open, concious person. An old soul I would say.

  • I love that you mentioned creating a punishment if you don’t follow through. So many people are afraid to use negative reinforcement for themselves. But really, it’s only “negative” when it’s imposed on us by others. It’s POWERFUL when we create it. I personally love the idea of anti-charities you have to donate to a charity you HATE. If that’s not motivating, I don’t know what it. ��

  • Everything about this video is excellent. All of your ideas are so on point and creative ahh I love it. Thank you so much for taking the time to collaborate with me:) lots of good vibes your way!!

  • A little note to everyone:
    Everyone can always get better at something.. EVERYONE..
    But, it doesn’t mean you have to.
    Don’t go stressing about not being the amazing athlete you wanna be or being the top student of your grade.
    Cuz even tho you can get better, you are also perfectly fine the way you are now..
    Just a tip for others like me that feel bad when they don’t acomplish their insane goals:)

  • im so excited for 2019 to start already too! I hate it when people tell me “it’s just another year, nothing is going to change blablabla”

  • Hey socratica, Ive been subscribed for the better part of the year, mostly to learn Python, but I’ve looked through a couple of your other series. I especially enjoy your videos on art history.

    I noticed today, that you’re accepting bitcoin. That’s great! I believe crypto currencies and decentralized networks will play a huge part in our lives in the future, and I love that your channel is on the ball. However, I refuse to use bitcoin myself, it’s proof of work consensus algo is an environmental disaster, and the confirmation times are frustrating, to say the least. If you were to post a Nano address for me to donate to, I’d do it in a heartbeat. Nano is a fast, fee less, low energy crypto (more than 8 million times as efficient as bitcoin), optimized for transfer of value, and nothing else. It just passed a thorough security audit, and is supported by a vibrant community building on the protocol. Take a look for yourself http://www.nano.org.

    Thanks for the continued stream of high quality content, and a happy new year!

  • Just found your channel I’m 27 and typically, gravitate towards youtubers closer to my age but found your videos to be so well done and thought out! You’re fabulous! Thanks for putting them out into the world!

  • i could never do the travel to your home town thing, our population is less than 5k you coukld drive through our town in 10 min. It’s crazy, butb i am trying a ton of others for my 2019 goals!

  • Hello! Thank you so much. You are fantabulous. The way you explain is awesome. I have learnt so much from your grammar videos. I have no words to express my gratitude �� Thank you once again ��

  • As a drama student, filler words are simply banned from our speech. It took me a good year or so to really trim it down, and now I get complimented a lot by strangers who hear me speak in a taxi, random chats at Starbucks etc. It’s a really rewarding thing to do, especially when the prize comes in so many varied ways; keeps life surprising as well as purposeful.

  • Hello Socratica! I am watching this exactly one year after. January of 2020. And my goals for this year are reading two books per month, running three times a week and keep watching your videos every day. I wish you a very happy new year! Kisses from Brazil. ��

  • hey man great video! I wanted to get in touch with you because my friend Adom ( you guys met at the Graveti meetup) said that you live in Minnesota and were possibly looking for other YouTubers. I am going to school in Saint Paul, Minnesota so thought it might be good to connect! Your channel is cool!

  • I just found your channel but the thing is you have literally changed my life I love it! Your so genuine and beautiful and kind I wish I was you ����

  • In 1972, Martin Seligman proposed that when an individual perceives a loss of control in a situation and faces repeated failures, that individual may abandon any future attempt to achieve related goals. In other words, individuals learn that they are helpless and give up. Seligman contextualized learned helplessness as a precursor to depression.

  • Actually the nailbiting is my bad habit i seriously can’t loose. If i focus on it yeah sure i stop it, but i actually do it when i am focused on other things. And that is a problem because it happens kind a passive. Really annoying.

  • Came here from MuchellB.
    Just FYI, the “blood type” diet was a scam by a guy who wanted to sell a book. It was proven to be utterly false many years ago. It has zero basis in reality.:)

  • Thank you for dispelling the 21-days-to-change-a-habit myth! Even though it’s frequently quoted and used by professionals, it never passed the “common sense test” for me. Some of our old habits are deeply engraved in our minds and it takes dedication over a long time to change them. I think you’ve lightened the guilt-factor for a lot of people.

  • Please start the CALCULUS video again…. The way it describes and conceptualize in the video is mind blowing and we want more of that kind of video. Thank you ☺️

  • Llevo solo unos meses estudiando Inglés y me gustaría que pusieran subtitulado en español en sus videos pues siento que me pierdo de mucho.

  • The first time I saw you in the Abstract algebra series, I immediately fell in love with you and now 2 years later I still am. ����

  • Polca de ilha Rá Tim bum ������
    Você foi um dos amores platônicos da minha infância, era apaixonado pela sua personagem… Até hoje lembro de vc interpretando ela. Mto obrigado por fazer parte da minha infância e por ser tão encantadora ❤️❤️

  • Cheers Mr O. I’ve just watched both videos and my head is now a bit of a jumble as to which ones to pick. The ‘filler word’ ban jumps out at me for similar reasons to you. And the ‘start exercising by doing just one’ idea. I think I need to watch them both again a few times. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • My gosh, I have to turn the volume up kinda loud so that I can hear Sadie talking, but then there is no warning when the loud beeps and colorful screen show up so my ears get blasted. I’m really paranoid from it now

  • Wao so inspirational. Here is my list of top 35 life-changing new year resolutions 2020. Happy new year to all. Take care. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pv3lVY_WTUo

  • Hi! My name is Beatriz and I’m from Portugal. I follow your videos for some time and I just love it!!!
    I think you are super fun, nice and creative! And this video it´s incredible, you inspired me so much! THANK YOU <3

  • ♥️♥️♥️
    For those people like me who doesn’t want to be bothered about New year’s resolution:

  • A way to stop biting one’s nails is to think that it is a bad idea to put one’s fingers into one’s mouth: you put germs collected by your hands here and there. You increase your chances to get cold or flu.

  • This is such a cool list, I think sometimes I get on one idea and stick to it… which is probably good BUT… It’s so great to get outside of my ‘box’ so to speak.

  • This may sound harsh but the whole concept of a NY resolution shows how weak minded we are. What’s so magical about Jan 1st? Why do we think all of the sudden we are going to become so motivated and focused bc the calendar year changed? Please please please can we stop making resolutions and just implement changes we want to make in our lives.

  • My new year’s resolution is to wake up before 8 everyday, and begin my day with a shower and a breakfast. I’ve noticed that it boosts my productivity and makes me feel good.

  • Great video Tony! After our lunch at The Draft Horse I started the push up challenge with my fiancé! We’re now on two sets of 18 per day, on pace to do two sets of 50 on our wedding day ����

  • “Making stuff. Badly”. After years of say I’d do it, I finally decided to learn to play the accordion. Let me tell you just how bad I am at it. But it’s so fun I don’t care!!

  • These ideas are great yet challenging. Especially the elimination of filler words, for me anyways. Personally, I’m so shy that filler words are a safety blanket for me. I know it’s not a good habit. Can you suggest more ways to remove them?

  • I came from Muchelle’s channel! You just gained a new subscriber! So many of your videos deal with topics that I’m super interested in so once I’m done with my exams I’m going to watch them all! Love your ideas in this video, especially the one about doing one anonymous act of kindness regularly. Definitely going to do that!

  • I love all of them. I’m going to replay this video again and write down the most I need to do to make my life a little easier. Thanks

  • these are great ideas, but then I decided to just have one resolution for the next year, one I can totally focus on.. thanks for this.

  • Seriously, in 2019, I’m gonna learn Abstract Algebra and ODE, review my Calculus & Linear Algebra courses, and expand my English vocabulary up to 5000+ words.

  • Read my blog on how to achieve your new year resolution every time…

  • I quit being an employee last summer and started working with Skip the dishes and UberEats and it helped me get the courage and energy to finally start my youtube channel and twitch channel and do i love most playing video games. I really hope that it’ll work out for me and if doesn’t I’m prepared to the worst and besides I could also work more hours on the delivery apps.

    I made the jump last November and started both my channels and so far today I’ve been affiliated on twitch and although its not paying all my bills its still a good start now i need to focus growing even more and also work on my youtube channel and reach those minimum 1000 subs and 4000 hours.

    My number one take on quitting my job is to be prepared and have at least 3 months worth of emergency fund and have at least one income stream that allows to pursuit your goals

    Much Love and Wish you All courage and luck on your journeys.

  • I love the party trick idea. So fun and different that the typical “workout every day” resolutions you see everywhere. Such amazing ideas in this collab ��

  • Anthony, awsome list. the ones that jumped out at me were: 9 learn a phrase in 52 languages, 10 Draw the same thing for 30 days in a row and 22 Build from one. Lots of food for thought here.
