When New Year’s Resolutions SomehowActuallyWork Like many people who faithfully write down their New Year’s resolutions, I come out of the gate full of fire and passion, sure that I’ll reach my lofty array of goals. But come March when steam is running low, maintaining that momentum becomes all but impossible.
“But I can say that, despite struggling to maintain my resolutions throughout the entire year, they’ve resulted in some meaningful changes
The cynics among us like to shrug off resolutions altogether, citing the huge numbers of people who abandon our healthy diets and regular gym visits as early as February. But I can say that, despite struggling to maintain my resolutions throughout the entire year, they’ve resulted in some meaningful changes in my life, both personally and professionally. To maximize the likelihood of follow-through with your resolutions, you should keep them simple. For whatever reason, I can’t get this principle into my head, and I almost always come up with three or more widespread goals for the year, one focused on health, one spiritual or family-oriented, and one a concrete direction to take my business. Every year, my wife and I plan a few fun trips and events for the whole family to keep us all refreshed and to spend time together. It doesn’t have to be elaborate.

Overall, I think this year is shaping up to be one of the best yet. Every New Year’s, I’m filled with the feeling of possibility, the feeling that now is the perfect opportunity to change my life for the better. Here’s hoping that you feel
I think my main focus during 2018 will be continuing the healthy changes I’ve managed to implement over the past year. Starting with a Christmas Fitbit gift from my wife, I began walking 10,000 steps as often as I could in 2017. While my drive flagged a couple of times, I still got a couple 30-day streaks in the practice and shed a few pounds. In the past couple months, I’ve started to pick up the pace and actually start running. I have a tentative goal to run a 5K or 10K this coming year, and while it might seem lofty for a guy in his late 40s, I’m confident that with my new healthy habits, I’ll be able to do it.
