40 percent of Americans make New Year's resolutions. People see the first day of the new year as an opportunity for a fresh start, but how often do we keep these resolutions? Gyms are packed with people in January, but most of them vanish by the end of February. Some experts think we should skip all-or-none resolutions entirely; they're just bound to fail. Other self-help professionals say any self-improvement is a good thing, statistics be damned. What do you think?
