Resolutions don’t work! Try this instead…

New_Year_ResolutionsWe’re just hours away from 2015 and you know that time has come again to reflect on the past year and set your New Year’s Resolutions.

I don’t know about you, but I just don’t think New Year’s Resolutions work.

Maybe you disagree but why not look back on your 2014 Resolutions and ask if they came true.

The worst thing about ‘Resolutions’ though is that they make us feel like we have accomplished something just because we have ‘resolved’ to do it.

But RESOLVING to do something and actually DOING SOMETHING are two very different things!!

So instead of making another resolution that you know you won’t keep, do this instead…

STEP 1: Set a BIG goal for yourself for 2015…something so big and exciting that it can’t help but get you out of bed each morning. It’s a fact: Most people drastically overestimate what they can accomplish in a week, but they drastically underestimate what they can accomplish in a year, so come up with something really big you want to accomplish in 2015 and write it down.

STEP 2: Make a 12 month plan. Once you’ve established your big goal, break down the actions needed to accomplish that goal into monthly chunks. We all know that life gets in the way, so decide on one or two things you can accomplish by the end of each month and commit to incorporating it into your daily and weekly task list.

That’s it! Simple isn’t it.

Why not make that BIG goal a health goal?

It makes sense doesn’t it? I mean, if you don’t have your health, what do you have?

Have a great New Year.
