Resolutions - what's your take?

During a recent conversation with a friend, our discussion led to New Year's resolutions; the merits(or lack thereof) of setting any, and whether doing so at this particular time of the year didn't infact set a person up for failure.  

This got me wondering about New Year's resolutions(NYR), and why they are made: Is it because it is what's expected (societal pressure);  or is it because the person has committed to making a lifestyle change, is ready for the change and simply wants a fresh start at the beginning of the year? 
 
According to a recent review from the University of Scranton's Journal of Clinical Psychology, it appears that setting of resolutions isn't so much the problem, as it is in maintaining them.  Does this then mean that we are going about it (setting resolutions) the wrong way, and if so, how do we correct this?  Or is it just a case of making unsustainable commitmments?  If so, what constitutes sustainability and how does one go about achieving this?
 
So as you ponder the above, here's to a more balanced and productive 2013! 

Your thoughts are welcome .
