How to get your resolutions right

If you’re making New Year’s resolutions this year, here are a few links I’ve shared in the past, plus a new addition, to help you make and keep resolutions that work for you.

Chip and Dean Heath (who teach at Stanford and Duke respectively) offer “4 Research-Backed Tips for Sticking to Your New Years Resolutions.”

Here’s author Dan Pink on the science of behavioral economics as applied to New Year’s resolutions.

30-minute podcast on the Freakonomics blog about why willpower alone is not enough (and what to do instead).

And finally, a New York Times piece, “The Only Way to Keep your Resolutions.”

Happy New Year, and thanks for reading.
