I love the idea of putting a stake in the ground and setting a New Years Resolution! But I never really stop to think about why I do. So this year I decided to do a little research on New Year’s Resolutions, and answer the question of why do I, like so many others around the world, seize the moment to create a goal for myself on New Year’s Eve.

In my explorations, I found this great video that creatively captures some facts about this global ritual, check it out.

So why do I make resolutions each year…because they give me hope that I can be more, learn more and experience more in the year to come. By the way…one of my resolutions this year is to take more time to watch more inspiring TED Talks!

Xccelerate invites you to take a look at the attached video and share your Why.

Happy New Year!
