With the New Year fast approaching, many people begin making resolutions. It begs to ask the question, "What does a resolution really look like?"
We all want to do better than we have in the past. But I personally can't see making a resolution once a year and sticking with it. I'd rather make the resolutions daily and see where I end up at the year's end. That to me, speaks to the core of what I'm doing all the time.
The thing about resolutions is that most of them dwindle over time. They sound promising at first, almost warrior-like. Case-in-point are those gym memberships that begin on January 1 and fizzle by the end of February. I've seen it first hand. My health club is jam packed at the beginning of every year. But after a month or two, the same regulars are back and the resolute newbies have disappeared. I'm not saying everyone won't resolve to accomplish something and actually do it. But the statistics aren't favorable.
So what if we set resolutions every day when we woke up? Started each day with an attainable goal and tracked our progress that way? It could make for more sustainable achievements.
Resolutions are all about making small changes and starting fresh. Why wait for just "one day." Make it TODAY!
What do you do at the end or beginning of each year? Do you create resolutions for yourself? Have to stuck with yours?
It's a New Year! Create your New You!
