January 17, 2017 was this years Ditch New Year's Resolution Day. Interesting that already into the new year so many people give up on their resolutions. If you set a resolution how are you doing in yours? I was a few days later starting mine but my goal is to finish one book a week. I finished book 1 on day 8, book 2 on day 16 and book three on day 20. So now I am right on schedule where I should be. I am reading a book now "Sliver" by Ira Levin and want to finish it by January 28 to stay with my goal. I should finish it long before then.

@sol_cee I thought that is what happened. It's okay by me. I've had the same thing happen about a week ago.

It's a very long time that I do not make New Year resolutions. I am no more young, I do every day what I can.

I did not set any resolutions. So, no disappointment if I do not fulfill them.

@sol_cee I used to buy them years ago new and those when I am finish I plan to sell on ebay. Any other books I have gotten for free and those I will donate when I am finlshed. I also sometimes borrow some from the library. I do not read ebooks.

@corbin5 Sometimes I set them other times I don't. It is more of a fun thing for me then something I worry about like a diet etc.

I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I do try to set mental goals, but I don't write them down.

@shaggin I occasionally make a to-do list for things I must get done, but I like to go with the flow most of the time.

That's okay there are plenty of times where I didn't bother to make any either.

We don't do resolutions. Funny how much easier life is when we just don't.

I guess if you set extremely hard to achieve goals it could add stress to your life. A ready goal won't upset me too much if I don't succeed. I am doing well on it though and chose a book that I am reading now that I was hooked within a few pages!
