As we head into 2021, I’m guessing you’ll set a New Year’s resolution. Whether it’s to make more money, spend more quality time with your family, or like half of Americans, improve your health, it’s likely you will fail. A majority of Americans have given up on their New Year’s resolution by January 12. That’s less than two weeks! Only eight percent achieve their New Year’s resolution. There are two common problems with resolutions that set you up for failure. One, you make a vague goal, like to eat healthier. Make it specific, like “Eat one serving of green vegetables every day.” And two, don’t make your goal a negative, like “I’m not going to eat dessert.” Instead, focus on something positive that accomplishes the same goal. “I’m going to have yogurt or fruit after dinner every night.”
