I have no problem keeping my New Years Resolution. It is the same every year: I RESOLVE TO NOT MAKE A NEW YEARS RESOLUTION!

I don't recall ever making any new year's resolutions. The whole concept of doing something just because I opened a new calendar just doesn't register with me. If I want to do something new or make a change in what I do, I just do it whenever I have the desire to. The date is irrelevant to me.

If it's something I really want to do, I put an alert in my iPhone so that I'm reminded regularly. For example practicing my French every Tuesday and Thursday at 8 pm, or doing a plank every morning at 6:00. I think it's important to schedule goals into your week in a specific time. I don't always do what I'd planned, but most of the time the guilt at not doing it outweighs my laziness or business. If I can't keep u with a goal I rethink the scheduling so that I can be more successful. If it's something more general like losing 10 pounds I would schedule in exercise sessions and reminders to eat small amounts slowly, etc. This seems to work for me.
