📝 A New Year’s Resolution For Bosses: Abandon These 6 Expressions

 
Today the calendar is blissfully open to the promise of a new year. No doubt most of you are thinking about filling it with goals and resolutions. Before you fill a page with promises, you should ask yourself this question as well as ponder the reasons you may not have made good on last year’s. Contrarians will tell you not to bother while historians have chronicled the resolution’s 4,000-year-old history and point out that they’ve become big business. Still, we’re all for setting smart goals, so consider this simple one, especially if you’re a boss or planning to quit your job. No matter what you resolve to accomplish, psychologists (and Ben Franklin) offer a way to help you stick to it.
