Yes, I know that it is now already the second full week of January and I’m only now getting around to publishing a post on New Year’s Resolutions. I’d like to tell you that it was my strategy to get resolutions back on your minds since studies show that many people have already started to back off on their resolutions. In fact, according to one site, only about 8% of people stick to their resolutions. But in actuality, I am just slow getting my post out.
Do you set goals or resolutions each year? If so, do you stick to them? I usually set them, but I don’t always talk about it. That way if I don’t stick to them, no one knows but me. Turns out, this is very common and one of the key reasons for failure to meet resolutions! So I’ll share with you my top 5 resolutions for 2012 and that way you can keep me accountable. First though, I want to share with you some helpful articles and resources on resolutions and goal setting.
