Here’s a possible fix for those failed resolutions, according to Daily Mail:

Declaring your New Year’s resolution may not be the best way to get serious about personal goals.

Researchers from four universities across the United States have now found that asking questions is a more effective method in keeping up with resolutions, which have become notorious for fizzling out shortly after they’ve been made.

Instead of pledging to exercise in the New Year, it would be more effective to ask yourself, or someone else: ‘Will you exercise this year?’, they claim.

Eureka! That’s it! Ask yourselves a question and that might make you work harder. As you know, we question ourselves every day until we do something about it.
