Resolve to Stick With Goals

Fewer than 40 percent of respondents to a recent Women In Optometry poll said that they made new year’s resolutions a few months ago.

Overall, those who did make resolutions are trying to stick to stick with them. But some types of resolutions seem easier to stay with. For example, about 54 percent of the respondents said they made resolutions pertaining to physical activity (their own or with their families), and 77 percent of those who made such resolutions said they are sticking with the resolutions they made.

Half of the respondents said they made task-oriented resolutions (work or home organization, earnings targets), and 83 percent said that they are staying with their resolutions.

A smaller number, about 42 percent of respondents, said that they made happiness-based resolutions, and 80 percent of the respondents who made such resolutions said they’re staying with them.

About 42 percent of the respondents said that they made big-goal oriented resolutions (travel more, learn a language, build a house), and 70 percent said they’re staying with them while another 20 percent said they might be on track.

Most of the respondents said that they felt there was some value to setting goals/making resolutions.

Seventy-eight percent of the respondents said that they were women ODs, and the group represented different age ranges.
