The freshness of the New Year is exciting. It offers the chance to redo, refocus, and recommit to the better existence we long for. Crossing over into the new year, we hit the ground running with our lists of do’s, don’ts, and best year ever goals. And we sprint intensely toward better health, better finances, better relationships, and better choices. But, how long will your passionate pursuit of better last this New Year?
We’re now two and a half weeks in, and the year is successfully progressing on. Are you?
Has your pace slowed? Or, have you already come to a complete stop? If so, take comfort in knowing that you are not alone. In fact, you’re a part of the majority.
Studies show that only eight percent of those who set goals at the beginning of the year actually go on to reach them. The other 92 percent ditch their goals within months, weeks, or even days.
