“Pinky swear,” is how we made a solemn vow when I was a kid. Linking pinkies and executing a pinky swear meant it was seriously legit. Breaking a pinky promise was worse than stepping on a crack. And we all know what that can do.
What was I talking about?
Anyway, don’t welch on a pinky promise. Don’t break your resolution. You’re better than that.
Don’t just take our word for it. John Norcross, Ph.D., co-wrote a book called “Changeology: 5 Steps to Realizing Your Goals and Resolutions.” He says that people who make their resolutions public are generally more successful than those who keep their plan to themselves.
