It’s about that time. Based on the statistics, a large percentage of people who made New Year’s resolutions are thinking about throwing in the towel. Some already have.

According to research from the University of Scranton, nearly 4 out of 10 people quit their resolutions before reaching the month of February. Even more will fall off after that. But what about you?
If you’re like most people, you have goals for your health, relationships, faith, wealth, or personal development. These are the things that matter most to us, and yet it can be so easy to start with the best of intentions and flame out after a few weeks.

Now what: Do you hope the wind and waves will get you there? Or do you use the sail and rudder to direct your boat to the right harbor?

If you’re asking these questions, you’re already on the right track. Why? Because you’re already talking about goals you suspect, assume, or know will stretch you.
New Year’s resolutions are as old as time, but that doesn’t mean they’re very effective.

About 150 million Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions, and another 50 million sometimes do, according to research by the University of Scranton.
I’m excited to lead this live Q&A on making effective New Year’s Resolutions. It’s free and there’s no registration required!
When it comes to achieving our goals, the biggest challenge usually isn’t a lack of resources or time. It’s our own memory.
It doesn’t matter how big or important a goal is, if we don’t review it, it’ll fade from memory. It’s almost as simple as the old saying: “Out of sight, out of mind.”
