What is Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution Day?

Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution Day is a special day that celebrates sticking to your New Year’s goals. It is a far cry from Ditch New Years Resolutions Day which falls later in the month.

The Times Tribune claims that 80% of people have failed their new year’s resolutions by the start of February and only 8% of people keep them all year long.

#1 – Accountability. If you know you have a hard time being accountable to yourself, share your resolutions with a trusted friend, and ask them to check in with you about it.

#2 – Make a plan. I’m sure you’ve heard Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s famous quote, “A goal without a plan is just a wish”. It’s very true. Look at your goals and see how you can make a plan of action to achieve them.

#3 – Keep track of your progress. Sometimes it can be daunting to have a lot of big goals with seemingly no end in sight. Keep a resolutions journal where you write down the progress you’ve made!
