Honestly, I don't see the point of new year resolutions. Don't we all have resolutions springing up and down throughout the year? I want to land a management consulting summer internship in Hong Kong. Is this a new year resolution? No. Should it be one? Probably. But what's the point if I've always wanted this target since my first day in business school? What exactly is new about December 31 that I cannot think about earlier in the year (or later, for that matter)? None.
Maybe a deadline... a new year resolution has a timeline - a year. Fair enough. Let's get that deadline then. But please, why force me to think about a list before the New Year?
Happy New Year to all those who care!
