I’ve got a new article up at Breaking Muscle about tackling your New Year’s Resolutions – The Hard Way.
Every year, you make New Years Resolutions, commitments to yourself to reach goals you CLAIM are important to you. And every year, you fail to meet most of them – maybe all of them.
Think about what that means for a second.
If you added up all of the failed resolutions you’ve made over all the years of your life, and all of those you will fail to meet in the future, what would that leave for that poor person who is charged with writing your obituary? Not much.
A life of goal setting, and no action.
A life of false starts.
A life looked back on in disappointment.
I don’t want to come across as a Negative Nancy, but life is a finite thing. If you don’t accept that as fact and act accordingly then I promise you, you’ll wish you had.
I realize how dour that sounds …
Thankfully, in the article I go over the 3 things you can do to actually reach your goals this year.
My evil twin, The Plastic Ninja, doesn’t care about these kinds of things, but I do. I want you to succeed, come hell or high water.
Not for me, but because you owe it to your future self.
