2016 is here and now that the party’s over, it’s time to bounce back from the tranquil holiday season and get to work.
The first day of work of 2016 brings with it the dread of a dawning realization for most… you’ve made New Year’s resolutions, and you have to stick to them. Or, at the very least, you should give it the old college try.
According to a study by the University of Scranton published in the Journal of Psychology, 45 percent of Americans usually make resolutions, but only 8 percent are successful. It also found that those who explicitly make resolutions are ten times more likely to succeed in accomplishing them.
