Google is Mapping the World’s New Year’s Resolutions
Academic research proves that it’s much easier to keep the New Year’s Resolutions when you write them down. Google is giving all of us the opportunity do it and share it with the rest of the world by adding it to Global Resolutions Map.
You don’t need to log in, or create an account. You just have to write down your New Year’s Resolutions, your postal code and the country and it will then appear on the map for the whole world to see.
The map uses Google Translate so whatever your language is, you can browse resolutions posted to the map anywhere in the world. You can also browse through the resolutions posted to the map by category (Love, Health, Career, Finance, Family, Education, Do Good, and Other).
If you’ve made a New Year’s resolution for 2013, how about adding it to the map – or check out what others have posted if you’re in need of some inspiration?
