  4. 4. Question If someone doesn't set goals and make resolutions, how does he/she measure success?
  5. 5. 5 Ways to Avoid Breaking New Year’s Resolutions 2. Don’t write them down. Something about a good intention changes when pen meets paper. A goal written down (or typed) becomes a mirror for the person behind the good intention. It adds a level of accountability. Writing goals and placing them in prominent places helps us to avoid breaking New Year's resolutions.
  6. 6. Question What do you think would change if you wrote down your goals and placed them where you would see them every day?
  7. 7. 5 Ways to Avoid Breaking New Year’s Resolutions 3. Don’t say them out loud.

  10. 10. Question When are the times during a typical year when you would most naturally set goals and make resolutions?
  11. 11. 5 Ways to Avoid Breaking New Year’s Resolutions 5. Don’t risk failure. That's really what the avoidance of breaking New Year's resolutions is all about, isn't it? The avoidance of failure? No one wants to fail. Have we really come to a place in our culture where we are just content not to fail. If you are still reading at this point, I don't think you have. Take a risk.
