Why do resolutions rarely stick?

    I think it's about motivation. If you want to do something, you will. If you don't, you won't. You don't need a time or place, although external stimulation (like support) can help. New Year's, however, is a nice purveyor of conditions that allow for goals to manifest (especially those marinating in insecurities, like losing weight, or about health, like quitting smoking), but without motivation, they won't stick effectively.

    I think that people try to hard! And if you don't apply life changes yearly then its not gonna work month out of the year!

    I think we have good intentions but then life just gets in the way and the resolutions are pushed aside

    I think people make too many *unrealistic* ones & then can't follow through ;)
