(PRWEB) November 02, 2011

FC Organizational Products LLC, the official consumer products licensee of the FranklinCovey Co. brand, today released the results of its annual New Years Resolutions Survey, which polled more than 1,000 adult consumers throughout the United States during late October 2011. The first version of the research was conducted in 2002, providing a 10-year perspective on the most common goals for Americans.

The 2012 New Years Resolutions Survey found that respondents top three New Years resolutions for 2012 were also on the 2002 list: (1) become more physically fit; (2), improve ones financial condition; and (3), improve health. However, the number one goal of weight loss in 2002 fell to fourth on the list in 2012 and overall health and fitness issues increased in priority, potentially a reflection of the aging baby boomer population and cultural shift from body weight to overall fitness.

New to the 2012 Top 10 Resolutions are:

Read more
Change overall attitude: be more positive
Travel more
Do more volunteer work

Interestingly, four resolutions fell off the Top 10 List since 2002 (see list below), three of which involve career changes, suggesting that Americans may be hesitant to venture into career changing moves in todays economy.

Quit/reduce smoking
Change career or job
Continue education
Improve work habits and career situation

Priorities shift slightly within demographics groups:

Women still placed high priority on losing weight, making it their number two resolution.
Younger adults (ages 21-39) had career change, continue education, and improve work habits round out their top 10 list.
Not surprisingly, part-time and unemployed adults rated positive attitude as a top five priority.

As in the 2002 survey, respondents were asked to rate their overall satisfaction with life. Interestingly, that number increased modestly, today at 7.0 on a 10 point scale of 1 = Not At All Satisfied and 10 = Extremely Satisfied, versus 6.8 in 2002.

Full survey results will be available on http://www.franklinplanner.com on December 1, 2011.
