New Year’s Advice From Experts: Keep Goals Secret

ATLANTA (WAOK) – – Experts say when it comes to making “New Year’s resolutions” it’s best to keep them to yourself.

They say proclaiming your goals for the new year gives a “premature sense of completeness” — meaning it’s easier to give up and you essentially undermine your own attempt at the start. So experts say when someone asks you today what are your New Year’s resolutions, tell them sorry, you haven’t got any.
