Q: Why do most people abandon their New Year's resolutions so quickly? How much of a role does goal-setting play in achieving success? What are the most effective resolutions you have made?
I don't think resolutions matter as much as commitments. Usually with "commitment" comes accountability, and often, that accountability is to yourself or a loved one.
Success in goal-setting is usually higher when there is accountability attached to it, whether it is financial, sentimental, emotional, egotistical or anything else.
The most effective "resolution" I ever made was to quit smoking, which I did because I promised my father I would.
Happy New Year!
