Most New Year’s resolutions fail. We know that only about 1 in 8 people stick by their resolutions, we know why, and we know there are some tricks that can help you succeed. But still, most people fail.
That said, the great John Cleese offers this resolution, one we should all make.
I would like 2016 to be the year when people remembered that science is a method of investigation, and NOT a belief system— John Cleese (@JohnCleese) January 3, 2016
It’s not a resolution the whole world will stick to, but in making resolutions—as with science—an experiment only fails if you don’t learn something from it in the end. Just trying to stick with Cleese’s resolution would certainly make 2016 a much better year.
