Scrap Resolutions — have an Annual Motto instead.

  • We take too much on (if you have a long list of resolutions then read my article on perfect planning)
  • We set ridiculously high expectations of what we want to achieve and by when — as our goals are unrealistic we become more and more disillusioned with our efforts so give up sooner.
  • Life gets in the way — a certain global pandemic has show that!
  • We lose motivation due to set backs, illnesses, other demands on our time and energy.
  • Not seeing quick results can lead to us slacking which then leads to less results which leads to more slacking — and so on.
  • Add in your own here…

So what’s the alternative?
