Do New Year’s Resolutions Work?

new year resolutionsDo you do New Year Resolutions? I have, rather unsuccessfully, in the past and more recently have found them a little meh… 

If you want to change something, why wait until the New Year, why not do it now? But I recently learned something that made me change my mind.

We all know that most New Year Resolutions fail, don’t we? Most people haven’t kept their resolutions at the end of the year.

What if we compare this to “Non New Year Resolutions” though? Goals that we might set ourselves in, say, March or April?

Well here are the stats…

46% of people manage to keep their New Year Resolutions going until the end of June but only 4% of people who set themselves a “goal” at another time of the year, manage this in the same time period.

Interesting right? It certainly made me think, and re-think my thoughts on New Year’s Resolutions too.
