Ideas from books, articles & podcasts.
After an especially tough year, it's natural to think restarting in the New Year will solve all our problems. This makes it more likely that we'll try to go all-in, causing us to sabotage our efforts. For example, wanting to eat perfectly healthy in the new year and training every day.
A smarter approach is to plan ahead. For example, if you want to exercise more, commit to only three days.

At the beginning of every year, everyone makes resolutions, but it all dies down by early March.
We enjoy the allure of wanting to excel at something new. However, change is hard, and feeling overconfident does not help.
Resolutions don't really cause us to change our habits. Instead, it causes us to focus on a specific result rather than addressing the underlying thinking that leads to unhealthy habits.
Many resolutions fail because they are not the right ones. This happens because they're based on societal ideals, not yours. They're not specific enough and not supported by a measurable plan.
