How to keep those resolutions

It’s mid-January. Have you made any progress toward your New Year’s resolutions yet? If you are like the majority of people, the answer is, probably not. There is hope though. You can make accomplishing your resolutions easier by doing two things:

1. Write them down. You are more likely to achieve goals if you set objectives and put them on paper. Be specific about the stepping stones that will get you to the end result.

2. Invite peer pressure. Share your resolutions with others — family, friends, or a trusted colleague. Not wanting to disappoint someone can be good motivation.
