Very often we all hear about New Year resolutions and I have also tried making New Year resolutions. Basically a New Year resolution is made when one wants to correct the mistakes they have done the past year or do something in a more organized manner. I have also made resolutions before, but just like anybody else, I too break it up. But this time I am going to stick to my resolutions and make sure that I change myself. I have noted down a few resolutions that I would like to take this year and stick onto them. The most important of all is to be organized. I never have the habit of organizing my work and therefore end up in incomplete homework and projects. So this year I plan to be more systematic and organized, so that I finish my work on time and do not keep pending, the works assigned to me. Secondly I would like to be a good reader. I have heard that reading is a good habit, but I hardly take the time to read, even if I have time. So this time I have decided that I would spent some time in a day to read some matter or a book that would improve my knowledge and interest in reading. Another area that I would like to improve myself is with the excess time spent on the internet. Hours together I sit in front of the system, though I know it is just wasting my time unnecessarily. I have decided to cut down the time I use for surfing and make it more productive, rather than just visiting social networking sites and chatting. Along with the internet, the other electronic item that has addicted me is the cell phone. I spent hours talking over the phone, not realizing the harmful effects it causes and waste my time and money. I have decided to cut it down only for essentials and spent the remaining time for some useful work or to spend more quality time with my family. This time, I am determined to stick to my resolutions and get myself corrected to be a more better person, both for myself and to the society.
