The New Year Resolution Dilemma

A report [courtesy: Steve Shapiro] says that only 8% of the people who make new year resolutions succeed in them.

The other way to look at it is 92% of the people who make new year resolutions won’t succeed in them.

So, what should you do?

Simple – go ahead and make those resolutions NOW.  One of your resolutions have to be to end up in the 8% camp who make things happen.

As far as the statistics are concerned, the odds are REALLY in your favor and not very different from anything significant and meaningful in life.

Nine out of ten startups fail. Does not mean that you don’t want to be involved in a startup.

If you get more than 1% response from direct mail, you are lucky. Does not mean that people won’t engage in direct mail.

I can go on but you get the point.

Check the statistics for any significant and meaningful accomplishment in life and the odds are probably worse than this.

So, you make the choice and have a great new year!
