We all love making New Year resolutions. But the crazy thing is that most times, for most people, this love is short-lived.
We enter the New Year clinking glasses and vowing to do blah, blah, blah.
Then the end of January arrives and we are back to our old selves- breaking our “vows” and relenting in our efforts to get better.
As for me, I hate making New Year resolutions! Why?
Well, because my resolutions don’t live past the first week. Infact, I broke some of them on January 1st. And I bet you’re somewhat like me.
Why does this happen?
Well, it’s not because people don’t know what they want. And it’s definitely not because we lack commitment.
The answer is quite simple.
Many resolutions are mere dreams. Many dreams are unrealistic. And the dreamers don’t like to face reality.
It is for this simple reason that setting goals rock!
Resolutions aren’t goals because there are no set out plans to achieve them. This is why most aren’t achieved.
Setting New Year goals with set out plans on how to achieve them helps you track your progress throughout the year. Even if those goals aren’t achieved by December 31st, you’ll be rest assured that you’ve made some progress, no matter how small.
