One study shows the most common reason for participants failing their New Years' Resolutions was setting themselves unrealistic goals (35%), while 33% didn't keep track of their progress and a further 23% forgot about it. About one in 10 respondents claimed they made too many resolutions. 
So break our resolution into smaller goals that are specific, measurable and time-based.

Lawyer New Year Resolutions:

1. Get in the Law School This is hard process. In the United States, most law schools require a bachelor's degree, a satisfactory undergraduate grade point average (GPA), and a satisfactory score on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) as prerequisites for admission. In other parts of the World you have to finish high school with high average grades and pass Law School Admission Test. It's a challenge for sure, but you're up for it.

2. Pass the Final Law School Exams. If you’re a student, exams are an important part not only of any class, but also your final grade. Preparing throughout the semester is the most effective way to do well on your final exams. Ultimately, there’s just no shortcut for knowing the material so be prepared.

3. Pass the Bar Exam.  A bar examination is a test intended to determine whether a candidate is qualified to practice law in a given jurisdiction. People take the bar examination to be qualified to take a judge or a public prosecutor examination. Bar exam is different around the World but one thing is common anywhere: Bar exam is difficult as hell.

4. Being More Proactive About Your Career.  The start of a new year is a perfect time to reflect on past accomplishments and to commit to changes that will take your career to the next level. As a lawyer, there is no single pathway to success. That means you have to take primary responsibility for managing your career and building your practice. Improving your time management,better legal writing, strengthening your relationships with clients etc. are some of good New Year Resolutions.

5. Take Care of Your Health. Maintaining your health is most important New Year resolution. Health is something that is easy to take for granted. When we start losing it, it's hard to believe we spent so long not valuing it. To ensure that you stay as healthy as possible you have to make time for healthy eating and some exercise. Create short-term objectives and promise to yourself that you will every day try to eat more healthy food and do your weekly exercises (2 or 3 weekly workouts is a good start). Don't stress yourself too much. Find something that relaxes you (music, meditation, yoga etc).

So Make your resolutions but not too many. Break your goal into a series of steps, focusing on creating sub-goals that are concrete, measurable and time-based. Every day do something to get closer to achieving your goals.
