The Reality of New Year’s Resolutions

It’s been about a week since you sat down and made your proverbial New Year’s Resolution.  Odds are you are doing well keeping them so far.
Your glowing determination to succeed fades quickly after a few months.  Here are the revealing realities of New Year’s Resolutions.
40-45% of adult Americans make one or more New Year’s Resolutions.
75% keep resolutions past 1 week
71% keep resolutions past 2 weeks
64% keep resolutions past 1 month
46% keep resolutions after 6 months.
That means only 16 to 20% of adult Americans stick with a goal longer than 6 months.  80-84% of Americans fail completely. Explicitly writing out goals increases success rate by 10 times.
