So, as a general thing, I don't exactly believe in "New Year's Resolutions". I do believe in general resolutions and goal setting, just not specifically doing it just because the calendar says it's time. I think everyone has different points where they become reflective and are ready to set goals.
Having said that, I often do set new goals for myself near New Years. It's largely because my birthday is the end of December. I find my birthday to be a time when I become reflective. They are practically on New Years, but not quite. As a triathlete, it often makes sense to set those goals near the New Year as well. Mainly because it's often the time you start focused training for the next season.
Having said that, I haven't quite pinpointed some of my more specific goals for the year. I don't know if I'll be setting resolutions* as well. I've had my major goals decided for a while, but I know there's going to be some more specific things I want to work towards as well. Just haven't quite figured that out.
So, the point of my post is to say: make those goals and resolutions when you're ready. Because I have a blog, I've been feeling the pressure that I ought to spell it out right now, but I'm not there. I'm moving forward with my pre-training plan (my actual HIM plan starts in March, but I'm making sure I'm ready to start it right now), so no worries. I'm not being lazy.
* I consider goals to be specific objectives with a specific timeline, and resolutions to be a decision to change/create/end a habit.
