·       Resolution (noun)                                                                                                                                         a decision to do something or to behave in a certain manner  "he always wrote down his New Year's resolutions"
·       A firm decision to do or not to do something.  Research backs up these claims. According to a 2011 Marist University poll, "losing weight" topped the list for one in five resolution-making Americans, closely followed by "exercising more," with "spending less and saving more," "quitting smoking" and "being a better person" tied for third.
New Year’s Resolutions, can be from real common sense to the unrealistic.  An example of unrealistic is: “I will write a Best Selling Novel during the coming year.”  An example of realistic or common sense resolution might be: “I will whiten my teeth, and try to not stay up so late during the week.”
To succeed a resolution must be well thought out, and written down, so that you will be reminded of the commitment that you made to yourself.  If you over reach or exaggerate your resolution, you might well be setting yourself up for failure.
I have a pretty good grasp of my personal life and the things that personally affect me specifically through my action.  For instance I can confess that in my lifetime, I’ve probably lost at least a couple of hundred pounds.  That is not to say that I was ever that much overweight in my life, but in fact I have made corrections to my body weight by dropping a few ponds now and then only to gain them back.
I like to tell my wife that the only addiction in my life is her.  I never started smoking because back when all my high school friends were being cool, cigarettes cost 25 cents per pack, and I wasn’t about to grow addicted to anything that cost that much, just to burn (imagine that with today’s prices).  I never got addicted to alcohol because I’ve spent most of my life participating in sports, or otherwise holding down management positions that required clarity of mind.  Besides, when I go out for fun, I like to be entertained and not be the entertainment.’
I have the ability to analyze my life and determine that correction is required, whenever that occurs, I take care of it and don’t have to wait for New Year’s Day to roll around.  Resolutions are good however, for anyone that needs the additional pressure of having their life adjustments under the spotlight.  Even if it’s just pinned to the bulletin board at home or on the refrigerator as a reminder.  I definitely encourage and support anyone that is inclined to start working on a resolution for the New Year.  The best is yet to come…..
