Are You Committed to a New Year’s Resolution? ‘Cause Most Fail Miserably — Survey of the Day
The hangover has subsided, and the noise makers and funny hats have been thrown away, so now New Year’s revelers are just left with the resolutions they made when the clock struck midnight. Unfortunately, most of us may even throw those out as well.
According to a recent survey of 15,301 adults by FranklinConvey, 35 percent will have their resolutions fail by the end of January, and only 23 percent will make it to the end of the year with their resolutions in tact.
Forty percent of those polled attributed their inability to follow through with their resolution to having too many other things to do, while 33 percent blamed their failure on never being that committed to resolutions in the first place.
