Make Your Resolutions Work For You
Every year we make resolutions we plan on keeping, big life changes we plan to make, small and large goals to make our lives better. Some people want to quit smoking others want to lose weight and yet others want to achieve financial freedom. But for most of us, no matter how good intentions are at the start of the year by the end of the year we look back and realize that we let many of those resolutions slip by and after a while we just kind of give up on making any New Year’s Resolutions at all. After-all, what is the point if we are only going to break them or ignore them? The New year marks the renewal of our lives and goals. That is why Gym sign ups and Martial Arts Dojo sign ups are at an all time high during the month of January. But by February and definitely March (Beware The Ides of March) actual attendance has dropped way down. And a bunch of people have signed a year long contract just to use one or 2 months. The Gyms count on this influx, if everyone that signed up showed up all the time there would be too many people for the amount of machines, lucky of them people may have good intentions but always find excuses to not go.
“If it’s important to you, you will find a way! If it’s not you will find an excuse”
The reality is, writing down your New Year’s Resolutions is a good habit that helps solidify your future goals in your mind and conscience and makes them more powerful and more achievable.
Writing down your resolutions give you a clear goal you are working towards and a good reminder of what you want to strive for.
With a clearer picture you can then take smaller actionable steps towards that goal and at the end of the year you can look back and see which ones you were able to achieve and which still need work.
If you tend to set way too lofty goals each time and never feel like you accomplish anything then try instead setting up a few experiments, small changes and smaller goals to reach throughout the year. With experiments we have a general expected result but know there could be variations and don’t expect a rigid set of results. In this way experiments are more fun to implement as they come with fun surprises along the way, we then take note of the results and adjust our next actions and next smaller goals to create the next set of experiments. Smaller goals are achievable, keep the big goals within sight but make sure to accomplish your smaller goals on the road to the bigger overall goals. By being more specific with smaller actionable goals you will find much greater success overall. Good luck in 2018, may you achieve some of your lofty goals!
