There are two trusisms when it comes to setting New Year's resolutions. The first being that it is never too late (or too soon) to set goals, whether it's at the start of 2016, or today.
The second is that to see your resolution through to the end (something research shows only 8% of us achieve), you will likely have greater success if you focus on establishing strength-based goals. Research shows that personal or professional goals work well if approached in the same way someone might set goals at a company. It involves reflecting on your strengths, gathering feedback, tracking progress, being aware of any blind spots and stretching yourself toward goals that motivate you.
