I have mentioned in the past that as spring comes, maybe it's a good time to look back at those resolutions you made at the beginning of the year.
This post for www.active.com by David Glover outlines a great approach for successful achievement of a goal for the new year. It's based on a premise from one of my favorite life philosophies - "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" by the late Steven Covey.
First, set yourself up for failure by trying to do more than you can achieve. Second, a habit is formed in 21 days; therefore, anything can be achieved in 21 days. Right?
Take a read at this and see if it will help you fare better with your new year goals.
