The New Year just started and it’s the same procedure as every year: Many people come up with one or several New Year’s resolutions. They’re ready to start off the year with new motivation and improve their lives in some way. But in the end, a very small fraction of these resolutions are actually accomplished.
According to Forbes, less than 25% of people stay committed after one month. At Forbes, they go even further and say we should stop making New Year’s resolutions all together – Instead we should set goals. Goals are much more actionable, which is what makes them more effective.
