Why you shouldn't make resolutions!

January 2, 2018

It's a new year, a new you.  Or is it?

Every New Years Eve it's the same thing.  "This year I'm going to change my eating habits or go to the gym more" and the list goes on and on.  Why make them if you know you're not going to keep them?

Instead, set goals and achieve to reach them.  Reward yourself when you do but don't punish yourself if you don't.  We are who we are so why change that?

If you want to go to the gym more,  set a goal that by the end of March, you are going to be there 3 times a week.  Once March hits, if you have been there at least 3 times a week, reward yourself with new sneakers or something.  If you haven't been there 3 times a week, look back and figure out why and then set a new goal to reach the 3 days a week gym attendance.  Do this with everything.  Life happens.  Things happen and we get sidetracked.  Set small, reachable goals and keep working at achieving them.  Once you reward yourself for reaching that goal, set a new one.

In work, we don't have goals to reach and just forget about reaching them.  It's the same with life.

Make a list of 3 goals your want to reach by Memorial Day and how you can attain them, then give that list to someone you can trust to encourage you and reach for that goal.

Let's make a pact to revisit this around Memorial Day and see how we did.

Go be the best YOU possible.
