How To Set Your New Year Resolution

The clock strikes 12:01 am the confetti pours down and a snort is heard in the air. “New Years resolutions.” The appeal of self-improvement as well as new beginnings takes hold as the calendar moves to 2024. In the midst of the fitness and detox programs it is important to think about the following the following question: Are these resolutions only empty promises? Will they be buried with a stale goal or do we turn them into meaningful plans for personal growth.

The Resolution Paradox Why Do They Fail So Often?

The figures are bleak. According to studies, 80% of all resolutions fail within the first 3 months. Why? We can be seduced into declaring grandiose statements and rushing fixes. We declare war against unhealthy habits by setting unattainable goals without any specifics or plans for implementation. Inevitably, failures lead to discontent and frustration. We return to our previous methods, discouraged and disappointed.

Reframing the Resolution From Gimmicks to Growth Mindset

Let’s not view resolutions as a set of unchanging objectives. Instead, we should see them as a framework to achieve intentional growth. The key is to change our focus from the outcome on its own towards the process. Instead of chasing after an ideal body shape, focus on establishing healthy habits for eating and working out every day. Make a commitment to a consistent practice instead of vowing to master a language in a day.

From aspiration to actionWeaving meaningful resolutions

In order to create meaningful resolutions, you must be able to think critically as well as pragmatistically. Here are a few tips to help you along the way:

  • Determine the Core Values of your life: what is important to you? Is it health, creativity and personal development, or connection? Aligning your resolutions to your values will give you an underlying sense of purpose that fuels your motivation.

  • Believing in the potential of tiny steps: You don’t have to completely change your life overnight. Start small with manageable, constant actions. Celebrate each milestone regardless of how tiny, and see your progress increase in size.
  • Be flexible and try iterating: Curveballs are thrown by the forces of nature. Be willing to alter your resolutions as needed. If you find that a goal you’ve set is too overwhelming or doesn’t match to your current values then it might be an appropriate time to alter or take it off the table.

Beyond the Individual: Resolving problems that have ripple impacts
