Finishing what you start, including New Year resolutions

Press/Media: Article/Feature

Description

A new year, a new chapter. It's the perfect time to make changes to our lives. At least, that's what most of us want—a chance to make a difference and start anew.

It is probably why so many of us make New Year's resolutions. But how many can actually stick to their resolutions? We all know that resolutions are always easier to make than to keep.

Perseverance is the keyword to keeping your resolutions and achieving success. Daily temptations often distract people from achieving long-term goals. It is, therefore, essential to design external mechanisms to incentivise persistent effort.
