940 North | 11 Resolutions of Keep

If you're anything like I am, you have mixed feelings about New Year's resolutions.

It seems like a natural time to make important changes. It's like a universal pressing of the "reset" button. Maybe that's why 41% of Americans make New Year's resolutions in the first place. But here's the thing -- only 9.2% of us are successful in achieving them.

We suspect it has something to do with the nature of the resolutions themselves -- which seem, much to our joy, to be evolving. Lasy year, for instance, we reported that according to a study by the University of Scranton's Journal of Clinical Psychology, the top 10 resolutions of 2015 included things like losing weight and falling in love.

And while this year's top 10 resolutions, according to a survey conducted by the Statistic Brain Research Institute, are similar -- "self improvements," "find the love of my life" -- we noticed a new one on the list: "Learn something new on my own."
