How to Kill Your New Year’s Resolution in 5 Steps

Quick–what was your New Year’s resolution for last year? How about the year before? Can you remember? I don’t think I can either. How sad is that?

Resolutions traditionally center on self-improvement, which is admirable, but what happens between the grand intention and the (too often) failure—even forgetting? What can we learn from the cautionary tales of previous years?

Despite past foiled resolutions, the New Year’s spirit brings plenty of hopeful opportunity to make the upcoming months some of the best you’ve ever experienced. Just be sure to avoid the common pitfalls that stop your intentions in their tracks. 

Consider this a primer for what NOT to do—a 5-point map, if you will, for killing that bright, shiny, promising resolution and its potential for shaping your year.
