This is one of the most exciting and positive projects this year, in which I participated this year. The project is called #MakeItHappen and everyone can take part to it to fulfil the dreams.
31 resolutions in 31 days #MakeItHappen!
Here you can submit your resolution and Microsoft each day trough December will choose one person (31 provisions in 31 days), whose dreams will be met: www.microsoft.com/pl-pl/mobile/make-things-happen/
I am talking about New Year’s resolutions, which we use to make for the next year and which we consistently fail to meet. And so on… Although I am a person, who is constantly striving to achieve objectives, I am always requiring too much from myself, that’s why there’s not enough time for everything.
Microsoft has also conducted a survey to find out what New Year’s resolutions are significant in different parts of the world. This survey was conducted with 6,000 people across 12 markets (including: UK, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Thailand and the US) in September 2014. As it turned out, East and West are very different from each other when it comes to desires. The UK, US and Germany proved more individualistic, with 31% of people stating they would only set goals to benefit themselves. The survey revealed that over two thirds (68%) of the world’s goals were about wanting to sacrifice time to help others. Vietnam (48%) and India (40%) top the list of good intentions, wishing they had done more for others in 2014.
Looking to 2015, a greater number of Brits and Americans desire to lose weight – 16% of Brits and 13% of Americans, versus an average of 7% amongst other nations. The French (6%), Italians (3%) and Vietnamese (2%) were the least likely to mention weight loss as a stated goal.
Detailed view on the survey
You will find below more detailed information on what wishes people had in 2014 and about resolutions for the next year. On the right side there are applications that support us in achieving tangible results.
In 2014 I decided to travel more and visit new cities where I’ve never been before, capturing their style and fashion. I must admit that I love to travel and Microsoft Lumia will help me to explore another beautiful place by the end of this year. It will be an extraordinary trip. Soon you will know precisely where I’m going, I leave a little sneak peek below. I think that a lot of you will surely guess where I am going in few days :)
During the trip, I will be accompanied by the Microsoft Lumia smartphone. You will be able to watch the entire trip on my Instagram and Facebook pages. The pictures will be taken by this device, which has a great camera. ;)
