Making New Year’s resolutions is the first step, but for some of us, keeping up with them during the whole year may be difficult. Family, friends and partners tell each other which specific resolutions they don’t think they intend on following and why that is.
As we explore new perspectives we invite you to step into the emotional space of connection and experience the deeper lessons that shared experiences can afford humanity. To everyone who has participated openly and vulnerably in our project - we appreciate what you have shared with us and hope others do as well.
What's a New Year's resolution
you know I'm not going to keep
This is kind of a funny question
and I'll tell you why. But go ahead.
Oh, do we make those?
A New Year's resolution
that you're not going to keep?
I was going to say something, but
it's going to make
you sound like an alcoholic
and you're not an alcoholic.
Man, I would be very disappointed.
My bourbon. - Yeah.
No, I think you can-
if you ever were to make
a thing about not drinking,
you've done it. - Yeah.
I feel like if you make a resolution
that you really mean and...
like that, willpower, you'll do it.
You're not going to set
any New Year's resolutions.
You're going to have intentions
and you shall hit all of them.
Well, I would like to say
that you would keep
all your New Year's resolutions,
but you have so many ideas,
little things in your head
that you're like, I'm
going to do this, this and this.
But then you go on to like the next thing.
I can't help it.
you have like a million
New Year's resolutions.
Like, I mean, it's not like your fault.
It's just like, sometimes,
like the way your brain works.
I don’t know.
I feel like
I'd have an answer
for myself immediately.
Really? Damn. - Yeah.
Because... - I don't know.
I never keep my resolutions
at the beginning of the year.
But the reason I think it's funny is
I don't like resolutions.
That's why, like,
I don't think you would
make a commitment to something
and not do- like...
I think I even joked when you-
I said: my New
is to not have resolutions.
To keep decorating the house every year.
Yeah, I'm really bad at decorations,
aren't I? - Yeah.
Yeah, it's like, oh, an ornament.
Here's some lights and a little tree.
I know. I'm so not great at that.
I'll get better.
You won’t even make this
as a resolution, no?
I probably would, because I just see...
Well, it all depends on what we talkin’ about.
But I feel like we know what we talkin’ about. - Shoes?
Yeah, you would never make that your
New Year's resolution.
Yeah, I wouldn't say that.
But, I mean, just like you said,
you're not gonna buy them shoes tomorrow.
I'm pretty sure
I will be surprised if you don't.
Buy the shoes tomorrow?
Yeah. The ones that come out tomorrow.
But I also don't feel like there's
a New Year's resolution
that you would ever make- - Like this...
I would, yeah,
I would question if you were okay
if you made that.
I knew you're going to say that.
And I was gonna say,
you can't ask that.
you always have this like moment
where you do
very good for a couple of months.
You exercise, you got your shit together.
It seems like you’re gonna
keep going with it,
but you end up stopping
because work gets too busy or some shit
I feel like you're not going to
stay with the exercise one.
You know why that's not the case?
No. - Because it's not even going to be
a New Year's resolution.
I can't fail if I don't start.
Yeah, man, that's definitely...
Yeah, man, you're not
going to keep it.
If you try that
you're not going to go with it.
Oh, easy: exercise.
That's so easy.
