Top 4 Categories of New Year’s Resolutions and 10 Most Broken Ones

eve_new_year_resolutionIn preparation for this Sunday’s sermon, I’m getting ahead of Christmas and preparing a New Year sermon. I always thought that these resolutions are silly, so I wondered how many people actually make them. According to a’s “Statistics on New Year’s Resolutions” of Americans in December 2009, a whopping 45 percent make them, but only 8 percent accomplish them—maybe. And according to the same survey, the top 4 categories of New Year’s resolutions are related to:

Self-improvement or Education: 47 percent
Weight: 38 percent
Money: 34 percent
Relationships: 31 percent

According to another survey, Time Magazine’s survey in January 2012, the “Top 10 Commonly Broken New Year’s Resolutions” are:

Lose Weight and Get Fit
Quit Smoking
Learn Something New
Eat Healthier and Diet
Get Out of Debt and Save Money
Spend More Time with Family
Travel to New Places
Be Less Stressed
Drink Less

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? If you do, are you among the 92 percent who break them? Join us this Sunday, December 28, at Big Springs Community Church (Montague, California) to look at someone whose resolutions are about others—and—who has never broken his “New Year’s resolutions.”
