  • Yes.
    However, I do think that people should spend a little time reflecting on the accomplishments and goals they had the year before. That seems to get overlooked.

  • I agree, I love seeing and thinking about the year we just finished and achievements...that is basically how I set my new goals....Each year I like to do something better. This past year was busy and overwhelming though and I do hope this year to not let it get that bad, enjoy it more and my family.

  • I see it as a beginning, especially this year because we are moving at the end of this month. It seems like a great time to make changes :)

  • Nope, it's just another day, another year. If I want to make a change, I usually don't wait until New Years day...or "Monday" for that matter.

  • Yeah, I started a financial fast. I am motivated to save up and buy myself a car for my birthday. And just in time, too - every time I turn around something else breaks on my current car!!!!!

  • Not really. It's just time moving on. My life is not greatly changed because of it.
