For me, January brings with it the annual disappointment of breaking my new year’s resolutions.
It has got so bad that, in recent years, I have adopted the ‘baby turtle’ approach, making as many as I possibly can in the hope that one or two make it. None so far – and I am certainly not the only one struggling. In fact, an estimated 90% of resolutions end in failure. Whether it’s drinking less or exercising more, it seems that doing better takes more than good intentions. To make a resolution stick you need real determination and planning.
