New Year’s Resolutions – Etsy Metal Blog Carnival

New Year’s Resolutions. Resolution #1: Stop making New Year’s Resolutions.

New Years Resolutions

Did you know that out of the people who actually set New Year’s resolutions, only 8% end up following through. That is not very many people. Making very unlikely that even if I set them that I will even achieve my resolutions, resulting in a large amount of stress and guilt, and who needs that?

But I also don’t want to just wander through the months aimlessly without achieving anything. So this month I am going to take some time to reflect on 2013 and how I want 2014 to be different. I do have a few general ideas in mind such as growing my business and improving my health, but I will be damned if I am calling them resolutions!


Welcome to our EtsyMetal monthly Blog Carnival! Each month a group of metal artists get together and blog about the same topic.

Check out what these amazing artists have to say:

  1. It’s a good idea to take some time to reflect and set up goals or actions. Usually my big goals for the year are somewhat soft around the edges and may change/get adjusted as the year progresses. But what helps me to go in the right direction is setting little action steps to find the right path. Treat it like a training schedule. Little weekly or monthly goals are easier to accomplish than the big one 12 month away.Good luck!

    1. I like the idea of monthly goals. They seem a little more actionable for me. I seem to get lost with huge 12 month goals. Thanks Konstanze!
