As a child, I loved making New Year’s resolutions. They were usually comical, but I mimicked the resolutions from the adults in my life. My success rate of completing them also mimicked that of the adults around me – I almost always failed. It wasn’t until recently that I switched my methods regarding sticking to resolutions. Now, when I set out to change my behavior, I set clear goals and create a plan to make sure I am successful. Needless to say, my success rate has drastically increased.
In a recent article by Rory Vaden, my partner at Southwestern Consulting™, he partnered with Kelton to survey adults on the success of their New Year’s resolutions.
