We’re fresh into 2013, and with the New Year comes New Year’s resolutions. Resolutions get a pretty bad rap, likely due to the fact that only about 8% of Americans keep them, but countless people still make them every year. Why? Because a new year brings hope. We’d all like to press a reset button from time to time, and the promise of a new year provides a wonderful opportunity to do just that. The problem is, most people think that they will magically wake up a different person on January 1st, and so their New Year’s resolutions lack any real resolve.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!
Here at CFM, you probably hear a lot of talk about goal-setting. It’s important to know what you’re committing to and why, but those things should and will change over the course of the year. Goals aren’t static, and they shouldn’t be set on a particular day with the only possible ends being achievement or failure. They should be revisited and altered often as needed to keep up with YOU, the ever-changing person who set them. They should be challenging, meaningful, measurable, and designed to create the life you want for yourself. So whether you call them goals or resolutions, I challenge you to make some. And if you’re feeling really bold, share them here on the blog!
