Happy New Year!! I absolutely LOVE the beginning of the year! I love the possibilities and opportunities and I love the idea of starting fresh with a new perspective and new goals. What I don’t like…New Year’s Resolutions. Bleh. You want to know why? Well, I’ll tell you. It is because every time I make a set of “resolutions”, I start out all gung-ho and end the year forgetting what I resolved to do altogether. It just sets me up for failure and disappointment.
Every. Single. Time.
I am not alone in this though! I just read that 50% of people that make New Year’s Resolutions fail by the end of January and 9 out of 10 throw in the towel completely by March! That’s 90%!
See what I did there? Math! Like a boss.
So, since I discovered that the majority of resolution-makers end up feeling like failures by the end of the year (or March really), I thought I’d share what I’ve discovered works way better and has a much higher success rate.
And it is this…picking a “word of the year”. Yep. The blogiverse has it right! Picking ONE word to focus on for the year is so much better than writing down a zillion resolutions. I have found this to be true my very own self.
