Accomplishing Your New Year’s Resolution

Here’s a hint to help you achieve a New Year’s resolution—make it ambitious and specific, well-defined, and achievable. Many studies associated with goal theory and performance improvement consistently show that a harder goal is more likely to be achieved than an easy goal with a vague understanding of the final result. The reason why is simple: Specificity drives and channels your behavior. Establish a timeline and objectives, and measure your progress. With these steps, you may be among the 15% to 16% of the population that actually accomplishes their New Year’s resolutions.
