Why New Year Resolutions Don’t Work

Why New Year Resolutions Don't Work

While new year resolutions are common practice, most people fail to stay on track for more than a week or two.  Whether you want to lose weight, spend more time with family, work less or make more money – it takes more than good intentions to make it happen.

Here’s how to turn your resolutions into results.

# 1 – Think Goals. Most people set resolutions that are vague. So think goals instead.  Make it specific, write it down and keep it visible so it acts as a constant reminder for you.

#2 – Take Action. Nothing will change unless to take action and do something.  This may include specific tasks, new skills or simply changing some old habits or behaviors.  For example, if you want to spend more time with your family, you may need to go into work earlier, delegate non-essential tasks, hire an assistant, improve your time management skills or plan and prioritize you work better.  So now that you set your goal, identify what you need to DO in order to achieve it.

#3 – Share It.  Share your goal with someone who is supportive and passionate about your success.  This can be a spouse, friend, mentor or coach.  Sharing your goals with someone else adds a level of accountability and focus – because it is natural for them to ask you how you are doing.  It’s the best motivation out there!

It’s not too late.  Make this the year you get what you want. Set It.  Do It. Share It.
