Episode 40: Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail. Dec 29, 2010.

In this episode we talk about how most New Year’s resolutions fail, and how to set some goals instead that you can actually achieve.

Show notes:

It’s a tech glitch from the way we set up the show. Shouldn’t happen again (thanks for understanding).
  • The standard list of resolutions stands out once again, but why do only 8% of people achieve their resolutions?
  • How to set goals that you can actually reach
  • We give examples of goals you may have for 2011: financial goals, business goals, & personal goals.

      I like that Meg – puts it in the right perspective. There are things we WANT to do next year, and then there are things we WILL do. The things we WILL do are the ones we set goals and create plans for.
