Give up the annual self-flagellation ritual of New Year’s resolutions and starting tweaking your behavior to meet—and beat–your goals in 2014.
Many of us have stopped making New Year’s resolutions altogether.
It turns out that we are making the right decision when you consider research showing that people who set goals for the New Year are no happier than people who do not set New Years goals. That doesn’t change, even if we meet our goals.In other words, the whole New Year’s resolution thing may be a modern-day excuse for self-flagellation.There is great value in making a decision to improve yourself, but by wrapping it up as a resolution for the New Year, you set yourself up for failure.
