After posting my 2012 Book Reading List I ran across an article by John Tierney called Be It Resolved. It has some great information about how to keep your resolutions and some surprising statistics that show that you can be successful in achieving you goals by following some simple strategies

    1. Set a single clear goal
    2. Pre-Commit
    3. Outsource
    4. Keep track
    5. Don’t overreact to a lapse
    6. Tomorrow is another taste
    7. Reward often

So I thought I would apply these concepts to my 2012 resolutions to see if it will help me stay on track to reach my goals. One of the biggest portions is outsourcing, which I have done by publicly declaring one of my goals. My book reviews will serve as a mechanism for keeping track of my progress.

Now all I need to do is come up with those frequent rewards.
