I’m finally going to take that trip to Europe. I’ll finally write that book. I resolve to exercise more. How many resolutions are made without being fulfilled?
The key to making resolutions one completes is in the timeliness of the goal. Have you resolved to write a book? Yes, you have 365 days to write, but will you? Everyone struggles with long-term goals. The key is in making goals that can be completed in a few months at most.
We should change our mindset to creating and achieving New Year’s resolutions every few months. Instead of having the same eight goals every year, make one every three months and complete four this year.
These new three months, I resolve to be outside every day, no matter the weather, sickness, etc.
Here is my top list of outside activities:
- Taking a walk
- Playing ultimate Frisbee
- Reading a book in the sun
What is your new month’s resolution?
