Small Business Advocate Poll: New Year Resolutions

The Question:
What are you doing with your New Year resolutions for 2013?

18% - I make New Year resolutions and stick to them.

17% - I make resolutions but usually don’t stick to them.

54% - Resolutions? I don’t even try anymore.

11% - Who needs resolutions when you’re already perfect?

My Comments:
These are some of the zillions of things we humans think about making into New Year Resolutions. Last week we wanted to know what our audience thought about resolutions, so we asked this question in our online poll: “What are you doing with your New Year resolutions for 2013?” Here’s what you told us:

Almost one in five of our sample said, “I make New Year resolutions and stick to them.” Almost the same percentage admitted that they “Make resolutions but usually don’t stick to them,” while the big number - 54% - allowed that they, “… don’t even try anymore.” The last group - 11% - bragged, “Who needs resolutions when you’re already perfect?”

Obviously the first group were teacher’s pets, always doing their homework, while the last group represent the narcissists. And in the middle are the regular folks who obviously live in the real world.
