I’m going to do a little series, looking at a few common New Years resolutions, and think about what it might look like if we actually accomplished what we said we wanted to do. Novel idea born! I am going to ask you questions to help you think about what you really want. I have a theory that most New Years resolutions fail because we don’t really develop them in our minds before we start. We begin with a vague goa like “lose weight” without any real clarity about what our deeper goal is. Then we wobble off the track in a week or a month and the New Years resolutions gets stuck in our coat closet until the next year. I found an interesting statistic at The Statistic Brain, that only 8% of people are successful in achieving their resolutions. That’s not a lot of people being successful. It seems that people who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t clearly and explicitly make resolutions. So right here, in the last hours before 2014 ends, let’s plan to get explicit!
