Don’t Make Resolutions this Year

With a new year coming, it’s time to take a look at where you are now. If you want to make some changes in your life, try something different this year: Don’t make a resolution.

Most people don’t keep their new year resolutions. This year, make a plan instead. If you set guidelines for accomplishing your goal, you are more likely to achieve it. Whether it’s losing weight, training for a marathon or clearing clutter, if you don’t have a plan, you won’t succeed.

Decide when you are going to start, how much time you are going to invest in the project, how you will know when you are finished and whether you have the tools and ability you need to be successful. If you have to promise yourself a reward for meeting your goal, choose it before you start. Create a contract with yourself and, if you have trouble following through, ask someone you trust to help keep you accountable.

If you really want to make a change, you can find a way to accomplish it.

  1. Thanks for your mindful comments on my site. You are so right! Both my husband and I love to make things, but then struggle with what to do with those things. We are getting really good, though, at releasing materials and artwork and it feels amazing! I appreciate your thoughts.
