How Do You Stick To Your Resolutions?

To help start the new year, many people make resolutions of things they would like to achieve. Your resolution might be to lose weight, exercise more, read more books, or any number of other goals one might have.

But often, those goals are abandoned juts a few months, or even just weeks into the new year. The gym membership might go unused. Or the pile of books goes unread.

Do you have any strategies for continuing with something, even when it is hard to do so? Is it simply a matter of willpower? How do you stick to your resolutions?
