New Years Resolutions

New Years Resolutions are the dumbest things to say.


Because most do not commit to them. So why make a "promise" that you do not believe in? Because someone asks, "What is your New Year's Resolution?" And you feel obligated to respond. And you reply with some weak "do good" thing to gain acceptance.

Stop making stupid New Year's resolutions now. It is dumb.

Instead set realistic goals for yourself - with realistic plans to reach those goals.

Be clear on why you want that goal - that is the motivation.

Then write how you will get there. That is your plan. Which could be a 30-day, 91-day or five year plan. Be real. 91-day plans are most realistic - not too close - not too far.

Set clear goals and plans. Stop talking about New Year's resolutions.
