Whether it is working out, eating better, or spending less money most people set a New Year's resolution for themselves to complete at the beginning of each year.
We talked to a few Zanesville locals about their plans for 2014. Some made concrete goals while others decided not to waste their time.
"My New Year's resolution is 100 percent without a doubt is to get organized and stay organized. It's my 100 percent goal this year and I am going to do it. I don't have an option not to do it, " said Mothertucker's Owner, Jimmy Pitcock.
"Most of the time New Years Resolutions are doomed to fail because there are too many other priorities, " said Larry Adams.
Adams says taking care of your children, paying bills and going to work make it difficult to focus on your New Year's resolution and it often gets pushed to the back burner. One area woman says despite her hectic schedule she always finds time for service to humanity.
"My News Year's resolution is just to continue to do good things for our community to give back. This community has been good to me and i want to give back, " said Christ's Table Board Member, Caribeth Legats.
Most people said that they have tried to stick to their New Year's resolutions in the past to no avail. This year they are making simpler goals many which are related to helping others.
