According to a recent survey (PDF) by Country Insurance & Financial Services, more people resolved to lose weight and exercise more (24%) or to spend more time with friends and family (23%) than plan to focus on improving money matters in 2008 (17%). Respondents also said that they’ll make better financial choices next year, although their actions may not be in line with their goals. While 75% said they are likely to make needed changes to their  finances in the year ahead, 40% claim they either do not have a financial plan (10%) or have not reviewed the one they have in the past year (30%).
