Why New Years Resolutions Don’t Work

Let's Connect

Incase you missed this last year:

resolution |ˌrezəˈloō sh ən|
noun
1 a decision to do or not to do something

I’ve never made a New Years resolution. I think it’s because when I decide something needs changing or fixing, I just do it now. Deciding to change a specific behavior on a particular date just never made sense for me. Maybe it’s just a personality thing but I wonder how much of our making and keeping resolutions depends on how we define the word.

resolution
noun
intention, decision, intent, aim

These words feel a bit wishy-washy to me. Almost like you’re saying “I’ll try” as opposed to “I will.”

What if we define resolution as
plan, commit, pledge, promise?

That makes it sound like more of a sure thing, doesn’t it? Something more binding, right?

Have you been thinking that 2012 is the year you are finally going to start or grow your business? That after the New Year you are going to get serious about making it happen?

If New Years resolutions haven’t worked for you before, forget resolutions. How about SOLUTIONS?    Check out what Barbara Winter and I have planned so you can make sure that 2013 is the year you absolutely MAKE IT HAPPEN,  HERE.
