How to make (and keep) a New Year’s resolution

More than half of all resolutions fail, but this year The New York Times offers some tips to help you identify the right resolution, create a plan on how to reach it, and successfully achieve your goal.

In this article, author Jen A. Miller helps you break it down. For example, to help you pick the right resolution for you, she says your goals should be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. She also points out some things that can lead to failure, such as creating a resolution based on what someone else (or society) says you need to change.

Read the full article here to find out how to create your plan, leap over hurdles, and find a community. She also shares some thoughts on what to do if you miss your goal.
