Have you made any new year resolutions?

It’s that time of year again. You guessed it! It’s time to make resolutions for the new year.

I know what some of you are saying: don’t bother making resolutions because, in the end, you won’t keep them. Some of you probably think that making a resolution is downright difficult. In a way, I agree with both arguments. I also think, however, that if you make realistic resolutions, you’ll be more inclined to stick to them.

That said, I’ll get the ball rolling with some of my resolutions. Here’s the first: persevere a lot more to obtain the projects or clients I would like to have. I’ll probably not receive the answers I’m expecting, but you never know what will happen if you don’t knock on each door.

Another resolution to make is to become financially stable. I will admit that I’m not good at budgeting. As the new year approaches, I resolve to fix this problem so I can avoid being out of pocket.

A third resolution? Sure! I resolve to learn at least one other language. I’m not sure which one to learn. Some languages of personal—and professional—interest are German, Dutch, Russian, and Arabic. I’m more inclined to take on German or Arabic for professional purposes, and Dutch or Russian for pure pleasure. It’s a good thing I decided to buy books from the For Dummies series! They’ll certainly come in handy.

Have you made any new year resolutions? If so, what are they? Share them with me and others!
