Keep Your 2017 New Year’s Resolutions
Having too many New Year’s resolutions is a prescription for not keeping any of them.
Practice it every day.
Translate Your Resolution Into Specific Behaviors Keeping resolutions usually means replacing old, bad habits with new, better ones.
People who successfully change their habits achieve something called “habitual automaticity” — performing the new habit without having to think about it. Daily practice allows people with average talent to achieve extraordinary things.
Instead of picking four resolutions that you will abandon, choose one that will give you the biggest payoff. For your resolutions, the amount and quality of daily practice you choose will be proportionate to the level of improvement you will see.
