Research shows those who write down their resolutions are more likely to stick with them, so the folks at Google are offering a little help. The search engine giant has rolled out a new interactive way to share goals online and keep tabs on what everyone else is aiming for in 2013.

The Google Zeitgeist Resolutions page allows you to add and browse New Year’s resolutions posted from across the globe. The resolutions are run through Google Translate, so they can be read in your native language and are filtered by category, from love and career to health and finances.

Although many focus on exercising and spending more time with family, others include “get a puppy” (California), “work less, earn more” (South Africa) and “quit smoking” (Russia). We spotted a “grow a mustache” resolution in there too.

To add to the 2013 resolution map, a prompt on the page asks for your resolution, postal code and country name. The submission should be added to the digital map in 24 to 48 hours.

What’s your New Year’s resolution? Let us know in the comments below.
