I was never one for New Year’s resolutions. Let me rephrase. I was never one for keeping New Year's resolutions. I’d always been a go-getter professionally, but when it came to those traditional, self-imposed goals (run a marathon, quit social media, yada yada yada), I always seemed to drop the ball. I tried all the various tactics to improve my chances of achieving them but nothing really stuck, and after years of trial and error, I finally figured out why that is.
