As another year rolls around, many of us feel like it's time to shake off the lethargy of our most recent habits and experiences and dive headlong into the "new me." THIS time I’m gonna make those changes! This time I’m gonna see it through! This time I’m not going to let circumstances or feelings or habits or others distract or discourage me!

According to several sources (business magazines and periodicals) no matter what we say or resolve, about 80% of us stop trying to keep our New Year’s resolutions by mid-February.

What do we do then?
