Unfortunately, you may end up quitting or forgetting your resolution within the first few months. If you really want to make it all the way, break down your plans, set boundaries, and look up strategies for your specific resolution.
While you’re fairly serious about changing yourself for the betting or getting an important task done, the nature of your busy life may derail you. Look for ways to keep on track of your progress throughout the year and keep the goal clear in your mind.
You’re very dedicated and invested in the little details. You can see the hurdles ahead, which puts you at an advantage compared to most who make New Year’s Resolutions. Don’t get too comfortable, but you do have a good chance of making it.
You have the right balance of focus, leniency, and dedication. You’re gonna make it, and maybe even beat your goals, despite how hard it is! Well done, you are an inspiration to others who struggle through their resolutions.
