All my life I’ve heard people making New Year’s resolutions … and the jokes about how long those resolutions hold up. I’ve made and abandoned New Year’s resolutions enough that I was reluctant to make them any more. And I was not alone. I’ve read that only 8% of people keep the resolutions they make at this time of year.
So why is it so difficult to keep the resolutions that we make? Is it because they are often made as brash statements without a plan to carry them out? Or because they are unsustainable?
