New Years tradition that are commitments that are made to accomplish personal goals, projects, or reform or change a habit in the upcoming year.
They are never about balance. They are about coming up with outrageous, unachievable action items for the year! They are not based on reality, which is why they most often fail, but they give us a sense of well being for a short period of time! Just to make a resolution without a clear cut action plan to make it happen during the year, is not enough!
I must admit that I do make them. I'm an organizational freak, and I think that it is important to make goals in different areas of your life. New Years Day is the start to a new year, and is a day that makes sense to look at where you have been, and look at where you want to go.
The same top 10 resolutions show up almost every year, because they are so difficult to keep! Each year, we try over and over again to succeed!
The Top 10 Broken New Year’s Resolutions According to Time Magazine:
The definition of Insanity is.....
Doing the same thing that you did last year, but expecting different results!
One of the reasons that Resolutions fail is that they are just too general and vague, and not specific enough. Like the resolution, "Get Organized"....What does that mean? Get Organized How? In Your Personal Life, In Your Business Life, Organize Your Home? Organize Your Meal Planning? This is just too broad and vague, so how do you measure your success?
Often resolutions, are just stated commitments, without any follow through to reach the goal. You need a detailed action plan, and some follow through to make them happen. Here are some tips:
With a Resolution in place with specific goals written down, and a step by step plan to accomplish them, and with some follow through on a regular basis, you can achieve success!!
