Did you have great intentions on 31st December to attack 2017 with a new sense of living and purpose? Made a list of things to do and as of today you’ve actually not done anything on that list and are feeling just a bit mehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…….!
New years resolutions are a waste of time IMO. It’s much better to have a steady ongoing plan of change and development that runs throughout the year/s rather than deciding that overnight things are going to be so different. You’re setting yourself up for some kind of ‘failure’ that way.
Making a list of what you’d like to improve is a good thing though; just be realistic about the viability of your goals given barriers such as finance, family, time, resources, knowledge, motivation and so on.
Barriers can of course be removed, but this all becomes part of the planning too. So having a well structured action plan really can help you to achieve your ‘new years’ resolutions at any time.
Some people shudder at the thought of living to a plan. It’s not to say that you have to detail and document every step of your life – that would be so boring! but the things that you have been longing for and never getting any closer to can cause frustration, and the worries, stresses and burdens of barriers that haven’t been removed are holding you back. It’s time to deal with those otherwise you are not allowing yourself to have real freedom and peace of mind.
