How To Achieve Your New Year’s Resolution
Shortly after the calendar turns to 2012, thousands of people around the globe will begin a New Year’s resolution to lose weight, exercise more, or spend more time with family. Poker players are doing the same thing. They’re making poker goals to grind a ton of poker, stop tilting, move up in stakes, make Supernova or Supernova Elite, win more money, study more, get a coach, post more hands, etc,.
Unfortunately, most people or poker players won’t see their grand declarations stick very long. We’ve all been there, myself included. A recent study showed that only 12 percent of people who made New Year’s resolutions achieved their goals.
The two important questions this article attempts to answer is:
- Why do people fail to achieve their goals or resolutions?
- What’s a better strategy to achieve them?
