Charles Duhigg, author of the best-selling book, The Power of Habit, posted this flowchart on his blog that illustrates nicely how to design New Year’s Resolutions in a way that backed by science:

"The key is to take advantage of the  3-step neurological process that creates a habit. First, choose a cue, like leaving your running shoes by the door, then pick a reward — say, a piece of chocolate when you get home from the gym. Eventually, when you see the shoes, your brain will start craving the reward, which will make it easier to work out day after day."
