Write It Down, Make It Happen

Write It Down, Make It Happen

Henriette Anne Klauser

Overview

One of the internet's biggest problems is how easy it is for false information to spread. Worse, that false information, once mainstream media have accepted it as true, gets cited and reinforced over and over again. Case in point: the claim that only 8% of people achieve their New Year's Resolutions. Dig a little, and you'll find it's unlikely to be true.

It's easy to imagine that most people don't achieve their resolutions, but pinning down such a specific number without proper evidence is dangerous. Similarly, it makes sense that people who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them, but it's hard to say how much it helps. But today, let's focus on the fact that it does.

In Write It Down, Make It Happen, researcher Henriette Klauser explains how you can use this technique to achieve what you want in life. This includes not just the initial act of writing down your desires, but also some of the science behind it, as well as other writing techniques to help you on the way.

Haven't tried writing down your goals yet? Failed on your resolutions before? Let's see if Dr. Klauser's ideas can help!
