I read once that the average date Americans abandon their New Year’s Resolutions is February 17th. Well guess what today is.
Last month many of us made New Year’s Resolutions. And by now, many of us have forgotten them. I made my own resolutions this year
, 10 goals that seemed so important a mere 48 days ago. But honestly, when I sat down to write this post, I couldn’t even remember them all. Hmmm, if I can’t remember my oh so important resolutions, I can’t imagine that I’m still working to accomplish them. And sure enough, when I revisited my list of resolutions, I realized my success rate is hitting at only about 30%.
I’m a 70% New Year’s Resolution failure.
But I’m not giving up hope. Maybe this reevaluation is the push I needed to refresh my memory as well as my resolve.
So I’m trying again. After all, I still have 316 days left to increase my success rate. I’d like to be at least 50% successful. I have no shame in being half a failure.
How are you doing on your New Year’s Resolutions?
