We're only a couple of weeks into 2013, but that means we're right in the danger zone when it comes to New Year resolutions. So if you're one of the millions of people who tend to break their pledges just two weeks after making them, how do you make sure you keep your resolutions on track?
If you've made (or are thinking of making) a resolution for your business in 2013, try looking for inspiration from successful entrepreneurs and see how they stay focussed on their goals. This Forbes blog is a great resource for discovering pledges that successful business owners not only make, but - more importantly - keep. Or check out this post from Business Zone, where entrepreneurs give their own resolutions for their businesses in 2013.
It's easy to make business resolutions, but how can you ensure you don't break them? Well, you could always try not talking about what you're hoping to achieve - since announcing a resolution to your friends can potentially lead to a "premature sense of completeness". Or perhaps follow these handy tips from Entrepreneur to help ensure your goals are challenging, yet achievable.
Thankfully, you no longer just have to rely on your own willpower to keep your resolution - as there are countless apps and pieces of tech to help keep you on the right path. For an up-to-date look at what's available, check out these best-of lists in the New York Times, Huffington Post and TechCrunch.
Ever wondered why some people are better at keeping their resolutions than others? This audio report from Quest is a great explanation about how successful resolution-setters are those people that see their New Year goals as "tiny habits" they need to make - rather than broad, sweeping life changes.
