Second-year journalism student Robyn Hertz asks the SAIT campus: “Do you think that New Year’s resolutions work?”

(800)Dec1-Campus-Comment-RH-0001I think they are a good motivation to start to improve in life.
Because it is fun, it’s a new year and it’s an opportunity to announce your resolution.

(800)Dec1-Campus-Comment-RH-0004No, I think that goals should be every day of the year. I’ve never kept a new year’s resolution.
Maybe I don’t put enough planning into them.

(800)Dec1-Campus-Comment-RH-0006I believe it is a new beginning to try something new and it’s a restart button,
if something went bad then you can start over. It’s kind of nice to work towards something,
like a new goal and get results and see the outcome.”

(800)Dec1-Campus-Comment-RH-0002Not really because people don’t follow them. At the end of the year people are excited
and they make resolutions that are out of reach.”

(800)Dec1-Campus-Comment-RH-0003I think that people believe in the idea of new year’s resolutions. They put high pressure
resolutions like weight management. The high pressure resolutions that
most people choose, it becomes a burden or stress. So I decided to
do a resolution where I can gain something, like learning a new language or a new hobby.”
Lisa Sterr, 2nd year, Travel & Tourism

(800)Dec1-Campus-Comment-RH-0008No, because you shouldn’t wait 365 days to make a commitment. If you want to be an ambitious person you should not wait until the new year.
Reid Morgan, 1st year, Information Technology
