It’s that time of year for New Year’s resolutions. And resolutions are essentially a fancy word for goals, right?
Here is a little tip for making your resolutions stick. Whether you’re aiming to volunteer more frequently, do a spot-on job of cleaning and maintaining your fountain pens, or complete your “The Walking Dead” fan fiction script, you should write it down.
A fascinating little nugget about writing down goals: it actually increases the likelihood of accomplishing them. In the business book “EntreLeadership,” Dave Ramsey talks about this phenomenon, a relationship that’s also validated by a number of other studies and experiments.
At Goulet Pens, we love writing everything down: resolutions, goals, grocery lists and any other excuse we can find to test our latest pen and ink combinations. Our team has shared some of their goals for 2015 below — and many included the pen and even the ink they used, just in case they catch your eye.
We hope 2014 was a blast. And we believe that 2015 will be even better. Happy New Year, and please share your resolutions with us in the comments!
