Here we are, already more than a week into 2019. How many times have you already been asked about your New Years' Resolution? I'll bet more than a few people have brought it up. Every new year presents a natural opportunity to break old habits, form new habits, and make yourself a promise or two for how you'll become a better person over the next 12 months. That's the dream, right?
A few years ago, I stopped making resolutions. Why? Well, research overwhelmingly shows that when it comes to following through on resolutions, the vast majority of people don't last very long. I've always been squarely in that group.
Instead, I started setting goals for the year. You might be thinking, "What's the difference?" Well I'll tell you.
