Resolutions and goals for a new year typically end up looking like this:
Lose more weight
Save more money
Spend more time with family and friends
Which are fine and dandy endeavors to strive for, but research shows people typically forget about their resolutions mid-February. (Don’t be a statistic!)
Why is that?
Well I believe, resolutions are not well-defined. They are wishes more than they are goals. With no real thought behind them people rattle off the same wishes year after year. They are things we think we should do.
What can you do instead?
I propose that resolutions never cross your lips nor do they take up any space in your gray matter. I am done with New Year resolutions/goals. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I did. Let me be clear, I am a big believer in goals, just not the way they are tossed out at the New Year.
Instead about how you want 2018 to feel.
Does you want 2018 to be joyful, peaceful, adventuresome, hopeful…
What are the things you could do to make 2018 feel like you want?
I want 2018 to feel adventuresome. That starts with more and bigger adventures in 2018.
I will strive to seek out more adventure.
That is what I want for 2018.
What about you?
