Happy New Year!
Resolve to have fewer resolutions
Most New Year’s resolutions fall short of expectations.
Figure out where you have room for improvement.
Develop a vision of how you want things to be.
And then be a little more like that every time the opportunity arises.
Don’t tie January 1st in as the time a “whole new you” will start. Continue to be yourself, but be the version of yourself that is more reliable, more decisive, more empathetic, etc.
That way, when you stumble, it’s not that you “broke your resolution” and therefore it’s now over. Most people hit a stumbling block some time in January—that’s why the gym will be full this week but much emptier a month from now.
You don’t stop being yourself, so instead lean into it. Be the version of yourself that does the things you admire and respect. If you fall short one day, you are still you—that’s not “over.” You’ll have another chance tomorrow to be the best version of yourself.
