Make Your New Year Resolutions Like A Boss

British psychologist Richard Wiseman has done several surveys on willpower – in 2007 he tracked the success of 3,000 people’s New Year’s resolutions, only to find that a mere 12% of them managed to achieve what they had set out to do. He looked into what the successful people were doing differently. And based on their experience, devised a list of tricks for us to keep our resolutions alive.

1) If possible, make only one resolution – changing a lot of things at once is more difficult.
