because you think it might please somebody else -- typically these are people who don't really give a fuck one way or the other
if you "get" the thing you think you "need" by doing whatever it is you think is bound to give you this magical "result"
. . . needless to say, doing something because you think somebody else might notice and nod their head is sort of lukewarm motivation, at best
and (to me) this is why I don't DO resolutions
if it is something you care about, you're either (a) already doing it or (b) working up the nerve to start and a specific day of the year "start date" means diddly squat
sooooooo, if you are going to do something worthwhile for New Year's . . . do this
stop making "resolutions" and start living your life on your terms
if it matters to you, you don't need a resolution !!
. . . because you're motivated
