| New Year’s Resolutions Your Family Can Live With
by Jim Liebelt
I’ve heard it said that a New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. Maybe this is why I’ve never been a big New Year resolution person. Recently, I saw a statistic that says 55 percent of Americans either never or only infrequently set New Year’s resolutions. I guess this puts me in the majority. I’m probably this way for the same reason so many others have a certain distain for resolutions. Once made, rarely have I managed to keep them. Again, it looks like I’m in the majority, as apparently only 8 percent of Americans are always successful in keeping their resolutions. So, I’ve thought to myself, if I know going in that I won’t succeed, why bother?
