As popular as making a list of new year’s resolutions is, it’s not uncommon to get off track on our goals by this time of the year. I read somewhere that only about 8% of people actually keep their new year’s resolutions. Gyms across the country see an explosion in attendance in January, yet by February numbers drop significantly. I actually used to work in the fitness industry for several years after college. We’d all joke that by February things would slow back down to a normal pace. Only those who were consistent before the new year would seem to be consistent in the new year.
So, what is the secret? How do you get consistent with something and stick to it?
