Gretchen Rubin, 2009.
Ben Franklin’s resolutions included less “Prattling, Punning and Joking”.
She uses the Authentic Happiness Inventory (registration necessary) at the start of her project and scores 3.92. She doesn’t take it again at the end of her project.
Often sounds like Sims – eg she sets herself a goal of making three new friends.
Worth reading. Main points are the list of resolutions and the “act how you want to feel,” wch I associate with Elizabeth Goudge.
