BLOGNo Year’s Resolutions

by Randall CraigFiled in: Blog, Make It Happen Tipsheet, Motivational, Time management

Every year, do you resolve to do something special, or something different, or maybe something that you used to do? If so, then you are probably in the minority, as many people have completely given up. And those who haven’t given up, make commitments only to break them a month or two later: they make No Year’s Resolutions.

Yet, the concept of resolving to improve yourself is highly valuable. If you really want to keep your resolutions, then consider making them differently:

  • Instead of doing something for yourself, resolve to do something for someone else. When you commit to helping someone else, you don’t want to let them down.
  • Instead of committing to a huge plan of action, resolve to do one thing where you will see success within the month.
  • Instead of just thinking about your resolutions in your mind, share them with your friends and family. They can be your greatest supporters.
  • Instead of just talking about your resolutions, write them down. On your whiteboard, in your calendar, even on your fridge.  Writing your resolution down is a simple step to commitment; calendarizing the activity means that it has a decent chance of being started.


Maybe for the first time in years, make a New Year’s resolution, and vow to keep it. It’s easier than you might expect, especially when you consider it carefully.
