Are you going to play catch up by doing a gitty up, ringing in the New Year with bang up success???
I’ve heard that most people give up early in the year, so there’s nothing to complete, because nothing was ever started. Surely, this isn’t you?!
I’ve spoken to people that don’t give a rat’s ass about New Year’s resolutions, so I suppose this post doesn’t apply to them. My apologies for even bringing it up!
There are those who start out stronger by setting specific goals for themselves, and take time to reward themselves step by glorious step. Their sense of accomplishment is typically s-w-e-e-t-e-r than most.
Some people pretend they are preparing to run a marathon. Each day, they run just a few miles, and having completed quite a few by now, their home stretch is well in sight.
Many people can boast about giving it a good go, and although they aren’t going to finish as strong as others, they have at least given it a bash, which has helped them to kick old behaviors to the curb, and usher in some great new habits.
We all define success differently, so maybe you are feeling successful right now because you even “considered” doing some things to brighten your life this year. Your end of year assessment was your New Year’s Resolution, you slickster you!
I read someplace that resolutions don’t have to be all or nothing. Tackling some part of your resolution like a boss is better than zero.
Hey. Hey. Hey!!!
I’ve also read that some folks successfully work on improving things they didn’t advertise on January 1, 2018. But they turn into a “NYR” anyways. Ding Dong!
I love the idea of having run-on New Year’s Resolutions. I diligently do what I can in a year. If I’m still passionately working these goals, I keep ’em going into the next year.
Some people treat New Year’s Resolutions like they treat their To-Do Lists, putting their main priorities on top. These are the one’s they work on first, and typically give themselves plenty of time to finish.
What about learning from the whole experience of doing what you did, and what you didn’t do this year? Learning something new is a fluffy feather to put in your cap!
So, with 31 days or so to go…
How do you intend to finish?
What’s Your Plan???
