Looking back over the years, it seems that most of my New Year’s resolutions have been destined for failure, and I am not alone. By the end of January, a third of our resolutions are broken. Why is that? Apparently we make our resolutions too difficult for ourselves to accomplish, thus setting ourselves up for failure. Willpower is the key to keeping your resolutions, or just make them easier to attain. Woodie Guthrie’s 1942 New Year’s resolutions list is a perfect example of making your resolutions an easy goal to attain:
“Wear clean clothes- look good”
Take a look at the complete list here. And let’s make those resolutions stick this year.
“Study at the library more often”
“Ask the librarian for help”
Happy New Year!
