Do you make New Year's resolutions? How successful are you are keeping them? I'll bet some of you have some techniques that
have worked for you. I invite you to come share them and, for my part, I'll talk about tips from cognitive neuroscience.
We're really good at setting goals. We've been told to dream big, the sky is the limit. We tell others to "go for it." These are mostly American mantras, but now there's research that examines how our brains get in the way of achieving something when all we do is "believe we can do it." Maybe you'll get so excited you'll dust off those New Year's resolutions that you dropped by the wayside in the middle of January.
