Resolutions are too hard to keep, so this year, instead of making resolutions, I’ve decided to make money. I’ve started a business called Resolutions, Inc. What we do at Resolutions, Inc., is help people keep their resolutions.
How does it work, you ask? Simple. Just send us your resolutions, and a representative will call you every day to make sure you’re still keeping them. The incentive? For every resolution you break, another representative will visit you (at your home or office—your choice), and break one of your fingers.
But we have competition! Already, someone is out to undermine our credibility, denouncing us as unscientific. His name is Stephen Kraus. Here’s Stephen’s bio:
Harvard-trained psychologist Dr. Stephen Kraus separates the science of success from self-help snake oil. Get his free 7-day Real Science of Success e-course, and report on Becoming More Resilient & Persistent at www.RealScienceofSuccess.com.
He’s written an article for “Happy Publishing” called The Top Seven Reasons People Break Their New Year’s Resolutions, and I don’t know where he’s getting his statistics—probably Harvard!—but according to “studies,” 20% of resolutions are broken in the first week of January. That’s a lot of fingers.
Have you already broken your resolutions? If so, which one of Dr. Kraus’s seven reasons was responsible? If not, how long do you give yourself?
