As the New Year looms most of us make a few resolutions we know we're not going to keep nor honor. These help everyone keep things in perspective throughout the year. Resolutions are often goals that we hope to achieve.
The most common resolutions for 2023 are:
1. Institute disaster management plans to keep family as well as business safe from unexpected calamities.
2. Focus on health and fitness. This has become most important and the world trend reveals that most people put health and fitness as a primary goal for 2006. Awareness of the connection between good health and an exercise regime has reached an all time high and many would like to choose the path of health rather than sicknesses like cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and more.
3. Spend more time with the family. Family has become very important and for many, professional success comes second. Fulfillment means more than wealth and climbing the corporate ladder.
4. Finance is a goal most made. Some want to reach a certain target like making their first million for others, the resolution was to get out of the debt trap. To make a sound financial plan so that the earning matches the spending.
5. Volunteer work, show you care by helping others. World over natural and other calamities have pulled at the heart strings of many. The events have inspired some to take a hard look at their lives.
