Now that the new year is here, it is time to be thinking about all of the “resolutions” that you are going to make. For many people, the top resolution is to do something about their job: get that promotion, work on a special project, ask for a raise, achieve ‘balance’, or maybe quit and do something completely different.
Yet despite our best intentions, we rarely follow through. And after years of doing this, we start to lose confidence in our ability to do anything.
This year, try this approach:
Do the first action item within the next week, and the other within the month. To help, calendarize them, and ask a friend or colleague to “remind” you about it every few weeks.
What is different about this New Year’s resolution? Perhaps you will keep it. And when you do keep it, you will have evidence that you do, indeed, have the self-control to achieve your goals.
