Yes, yes, I know… too soon to be writing about New Year’s Resolutions…
The subject came to me from my website redesigner. As you may know, we have been working on launching a new TNHMe website, with a new look and more user-friendly interface to find articles. One of the elements we were looking at was article categories, and so, seeing that there was this whole series on Vision Boards, he said “Why don’t you write about New Year’s Resolutions?”
I never did write about New Year’s Resolutions because I believe setting a goal can and should come any time of the year, not just at New Year’s. It has become so cliché, and even commercialized to a large extent when we consider fitness and diets, that I try to stay away from the hype.
BUT, in reality, Resolution IS the word that best describes what we do when we set our mind to accomplish a GOAL. Deciding, planning, committing to the accomplishment to the best of our abilities, are all part of Making a Resolution. My point is: It doesn’t have to start on January 1st!
So what have your resolutions been in the past? Have you kept them all? If not, which ones have you kept, which ones not? Can you see a trend? Is there a way you can put chances on your side to better accomplish your goals next time? Try to think about these questions and send me a note to let me know where you think your challenges lie… I will devote a whole month on Resolutions starting sometime in the next few weeks.
