Want a successful New Year’s set of resolutions this year?
Pick only one. Make it central to who you are. Record written daily progress with it in a calendar. Talk about it with close friends, who will hold you accountable.
Only one. The more varied, Ill-defined, unimportant to you, and unrealistic your goals, the less likely you’ll accomplish any.
It must matter. Otherwise it won’t, and it’ll be another failed resolution.
