I stopped making New Year's resolutions long ago. I always thought something was wrong with me for not being able to "stick with it". But really, it's about the process.
Fall is one of those big "start of" times for me (one of many times through the year that I set some new goals). This article is a great reminder about setting realistic resolutions/goals and not being afraid to do the hard work that's required to make a change. And if you falter, don't give up! Maybe you need to change course or re-set the goals. Whether your goals are based around the seasons, or family birthdays, or whatever works for you, try making them smaller, specific and more frequently!
